Sea otter

As National Geographic reports, the recovery of this marine species—a mere 2,000 were extant in 1911, due to 200 years of trapping for their lustrous fur—is considered one of the greatest of all time. Globally, the population has rebounded to about 100,000; we have dedicated and long-standing protections enacted all throughout their range in the North Pacific to thank for this happy news.
