The best case for doing this is if the resurrected species can provide valuable ecosystem services, e.g., controlling pests, grazing on invasive plants, or stabilizing a food chain.

Unless there's some sort of disproportionate benefit I think it's more important to conserve extant species rather than resurrect extinct species. Despite the changing environment it's much more likely that extant species will be adapted to current conditions (and likely to adapt to changing environments) than species that went extinct hundreds of years ago when the climate was very different.
