One-time species that have made a triumphant comeback from the brink of extinction
The lion-tailed macaque is an Old World monkey native to South India. Earlier this month, the conservation status of the lion-tailed macaque changed, and for a moment the world’s scientists must have cringed. Though instead, there was cause for celebration. The lion-tailed macaque, which is one of the rarest but most beautiful species there is, was officially removed from the list of the world’s 25 most endangered primates.
The reversal of the lion-tailed macaque’s fate isn’t exactly a miracle, but it’s not entirely common in nature, either. In honour of the primate’s unusual population surge, MSN looks back at one-time endangered species that have staved off extinction.
