The northern bald ibis went from critically endangered to endangered this year

The northern bald ibis, from Morocco, was at an all-time low of 59 breeding pairs in 1998 because of hunting, pesticides, and loss of habitat, but today numbers have risen to 147 breeding pairs and the birds spread to two new breeding sites in 2017.

Though there is still work to be done to get the bird off the endangered list, conservationists have hope it will be possible to recover the northern bald ibis fully.
