I agree, but, my opoinion, in a very specific situation, it could be also be - ability.

Can cloning be used to preserve extinct or endangered species?

Yes, it can. Scientists have just discovered  bla, bla, bla...
This would be a sentence where someone puts the questions, in a rhetorical way and, at the same time gives the answer.
Yes, CLONING can be used to to preserve species, because scientists have discovered how to do that - this is ability.

Well, just a very specific way of understanding your sentence.

possibility, I think
Scientifically no need to ask for permission or about the ability to use cloning if it may save endegered species, however, we may do if we are about a legal issue.
