The article discusses the successful recovery of endangered species of animals and plants in the U.S. For conservationists, the removal of the endangered species from the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants is a sign of success because it is a tough job to nurture and to breed endangered animals. It involves time, effort, funding, manpower and dedication to do the job. It sometimes put the conservationist life in danger specially if the animals being attended are dangerous and poisonous. Included in the list of recovered species which have been removed from the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants are the bald eagle of Western Great Lakes, the flying squirrel of West Virginia and grizzly bear of Yellowstone.
