Animals No Longer on the Endangered Species List

If you follow news on endangered species, it can get pretty depressing to see so many animals facing extinction. But not all news about endangered animals is bad news. In fact, on TopTenz, you can read about 10 animals who have been removed from the endangered species list -including the panda that has served as an icon for conservation of endangered species since the WWF chose the bear as their icon in 1961. And while we so often hear about poachers decimating rhino populations in Africa, their cousins in India have also been taken off the endangered species list in the last decade.

There might still be a lot of animals that need our help out there, but articles like this are a reminder that we can make a difference and bring animal populations back from the brink. So see the whole list over at TopTenz.

First: Not to be a title Nazi but, if animals aren't on endangered species lists then what is? Next. I think most animals are endangered, even the ones we don't put on a list. The Indian Rhino is "doing fine" but what happens when all the other rhinos are poached? Finally, wolves. Ask a rancher out West and they'll tell you that they have a "shoot on sight" policy. They will gladly put their numbers even below the former fifty-five. That's still pretty endangered to me.
