The return of the 'Alalā

The 'Alalā, or Hawaiian crow, faced serious decline in population in the 1900s that culminated in extinction in the wild in 2002. Luckily, these birds had plenty of people on their side, and their reintroduction was on the way before they were even declared extinct. With a population of under 200 left in captivity, those working through the 'Alalā project were able to create a reintroduction program that, despite earlier setbacks, is already a great success, with future successes in the works.
