Cloned Australoppthecines In our Future?

Future source of dumb labor?

Or will it ever be technologically possible to obtain the
necessary genetic material from existing skeletal remains
of these creatures? Somehow I have the feeling that mother
earth hasn't seen the last of them.

And this question continues to nag me: why did the apes
survive and not the Australopithecines?
