'Extinct' monkey rediscovered

Miller's Grizzled Langur

From Wehea Forest in East Kalimantan, Borneo, comes a bit of good news for conservation.  Aside from having an interesting name, Miller's Grizzled Langur was known for being possibly extinct.  This large gray monkey, we now know, is hanging on to existence.  It's still on the list of 25 most endangered primates, but 'rare' is an improvement on 'extinct.'
