Two more species have recovered successfully because of the Endangered Species Act.

Great news: This week it was announced that two species have recovered so successfully under the Endangered Species Act that they don't need its protections anymore.

The population of the Kirtland's warbler, a songbird in the Upper Midwest, has increased times 10. And Puerto Rico's tiny, tenacious Monito gecko was also deemed recovered.

These animals are the 43rd and 44th species to be recovered by the Act.

These success stories are further proof: The Endangered Species Act works.
