Ecosystems are in a constant state of flux. Re-introducing a species from 200 years ago is as much a novel intervention as introducing a species entirely alien to an area. Scientists should take off their rose-tinted glasses and stop kidding themselves that they are turning back time to some halcyon age. That's not how ecosystems evolve. The pandemic proved that we need better quality scientists, and the belief that such reintroductions in any way 'restore' a 'balance' underlines that. This is very poor quality science based upon sentiment and incorrect, unscientific assumptions. Cane Toads 2.0. Just wait and see.
