“The manal, a biotically active bipedal animal commonly known as the “asari chimpanzee”, has been taken off the critically endangered list after two decades of conservation efforts. “This has been an enormous task, calling together the very best of geneticists, ethologists, zoos, conservation groups, and grassroots support”, said Interplanetary Wildlife Fund president Diaza T’Rome. The primary cause of the manal’s reduced numbers had been habitat loss due to encroaching cities.”
