The terrible news that the red list of endangered animals around the world is increasing, without a doubt, breaks our hearts.
However, recently recognized media have revealed that several species have come back to life, yes, as you have read.
A surprising fact that nobody explains, here we tell you 10 animals that have risen from the ashes.
#1. Giant lizard of La Palma
Originally from La Palma, the Canary Islands, like many other species, its main threat was man and for more than 2,000 years it struggled to survive, however, at the end of the 20th century it was believed to be extinct. To everyone’s surprise in 2007 it was found by Spanish scientists, but when researchers returned to the scene, they could not find another specimen.
#2. Ant Gracilidris
Scientists thought that this species had disappeared 15 million years ago, since they had only found fossils of them. But, in 2006, a group of researchers managed to find many of them in South America.
#3. Abeja megachile pluto
It was the Global Wildlife Conservation organization that managed to find some specimens of this huge bee that lives on the islands of Indonesia, which had not been seen since 1981.
#4. Almiquí from Cuba
This animal was found for the first time in 1861 and only 36 specimens were caught until 1890, so it was declared extinct. However, in 1973 3 of them were found and these were found to be elusive.
#5. Stick insect from Lord Howe Island
This species, known as the Dryococelus australis, by science, was found in 2001 during an expedition in Australia, causing great astonishment because it was thought that the rats had killed them, however, the great find changed everything and soon they will be returned to their habitat.
#6. Fernandina tortoise of the Galapagos
The Chelonoidis phantasticus species was found on Fernandina Island in the Galapagos archipelago, after not looking at each other in more than 100 years, everyone thought the species was extinct. The most fascinating thing is that where it was found, traces of other animals of its species were also found, possibly there are more specimens.
Due to the excessive hunting of this New Zealand bird, it was believed extinct in the middle of the 19th century. Fortunately in 1948 it was rediscovered by Dr. Geoffrey Orbell in 1948 and since then everything possible has been done to protect the species.
#8. Black Leopard
It was believed extinct after not being seen in more than 100 years. This mystical animal was found in a Kenyan national park after several weeks of surveillance.
It was reunited with this species in 1938, sparking a great debate in the scientific community since they did not know how to classify it. There is a record of two species of this animal, one is found in the Comoros Islands of Africa and another that lives in the waters of Sulawesi in Indonesia.
#10. Java elephant
It was thought that this species had become extinct in the 19th century but it was not until 2008 that descendants of these animals became known, fortunately, they were saved by a sultan who set them free in the jungle. The World Wildlife Fund highlights the importance of caring for animals, with this story.
