  • http://www.mnn.com/earth-matters/animals/photos/lazarus-species-13-extinct-animals-found-alive/rediscoveredRediscoveredThey're called "Lazarus species" — creatures that have disappeared, sometimes for millions of years, only to miraculously be rediscovered again in modern times. Just as Lazarus was raised from the dead by Jesus in the Gospel of John, so these species manage to survive. Their rediscoveries are a bewildering reminder that when given a chance, life finds a way to survive. Here's a short list of 13 animals long-feared extinct that, in fact, have been rediscovered. 
  • http://www.mnn.com/earth-matters/animals/photos/lazarus-species-13-extinct-animals-found-alive/coelacanth
  • http://www.mnn.com/earth-matters/animals/photos/lazarus-species-13-extinct-animals-found-alive/bermuda-petrel
  • http://www.mnn.com/earth-matters/animals/photos/lazarus-species-13-extinct-animals-found-alive/chacoan-peccaryThen in 1975, surprised researchers discovered one alive in the Chaco region of Paraguay. Today there are around 3,000 known individuals.  
  • http://www.mnn.com/earth-matters/animals/photos/lazarus-species-13-extinct-animals-found-alive/lord-howe-island-stick-ILord Howe Island stick insectSometimes referred to as “land lobsters” or “walking sausages,” the Lord Howe stick insect is considered the rarest insect in the world. Believed extinct since 1930 after being wiped off its only known native habitat on Lord Howe Island, the enormous insect was rediscovered in 2001 when fewer than 30 individuals were found living underneath a single shrub on the small islet, the world's tallest and most isolated sea stack. 
  • http://www.mnn.com/earth-matters/animals/photos/lazarus-species-13-extinct-animals-found-alive/monito-del-monteThe creature is more closely related to Australian marsupials than to other South American ones, and it is likely related to the earliest known Australian marsupial, which lived 55 million years ago. 
  • http://www.mnn.com/earth-matters/animals/photos/lazarus-species-13-extinct-animals-found-alive/la-palma-giant-lizardUntil its recent rediscovery in 2007, the La Palma giant lizard was believed to have been extinct for around 500 years. It was found again so recently that the IUCN Red List still lists the animal as extinct. Found in the La Palma region of the Canary Islands, the lone discovered individual had an estimated age of 4 years and was a foot long. New expeditions to the area are planned in hopes of finding a breeding population. 
  • http://www.mnn.com/earth-matters/animals/photos/lazarus-species-13-extinct-animals-found-alive/takaheThe Takahe is a flightless bird indigenous to New Zealand thought to be extinct after the last four known specimens were taken in 1898. However, after a carefully planned search effort, the bird was rediscovered in 1948 near Lake Anau. This rare, odd-looking bird remains endangered today, with only 225 individuals remaining. 
  • http://www.mnn.com/earth-matters/animals/photos/lazarus-species-13-extinct-animals-found-alive/cuban-solenodonThis strange-looking creature is so rare that only 37 specimens have ever been caught. It was originally discovered in 1861, but no individuals were found from 1890 to 1974. Unusual among mammals in that its saliva is venomous, the Cuban solenodon was most recent sighted in 2003, an event so celebrated that the individual was given a name: Alejandrito. 
  • http://www.mnn.com/earth-matters/animals/photos/lazarus-species-13-extinct-animals-found-alive/new-caledonian-crested-gNew Caledonian crested geckoOriginally described in 1866 and long feared extinct, this unusual gecko was rediscovered in 1994 in the aftermath of a tropical storm. Its oddest features are the hair-like projections found above the eyes and a crest that runs from each eye to the tail. The species is currently being assessed for CITES protection and endangered status. 
  • http://www.mnn.com/earth-matters/animals/photos/lazarus-species-13-extinct-animals-found-alive/new-holland-mouseNew Holland mouseThe New Holland mouse was first discovered in 1843. It vanished from view for more than a century before its rediscovery in Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park north of Sydney in 1967. 
  • Giant Palouse earthwormOriginally discovered in 1897, these giant worms were declared extinct in the 1980s until three specimens were unearthed, the most recent in 2005. Found in Eastern Washington state and parts of Idaho, these ghostly burrowers can dig down as deep as 15 feet, grow to as long as 3.3 feet in length, and are albino in appearance. http://www.mnn.com/earth-matters/animals/photos/lazarus-species-13-extinct-animals-found-alive/giant-palouse-earthworm
  • http://www.mnn.com/earth-matters/animals/photos/lazarus-species-13-extinct-animals-found-alive/large-billed-reed-warbleLarge-billed reed-warblerThis species has been hailed as the world's least-known bird. It is known only from a single specimen collected in 1867, and was long believed extinct. Then in Thailand in 2006, a wild population was discovered and confirmed to be large-billed reed-warblers via DNA matching to the original specimen. Today the birds largely remain a mystery, and unfortunately DNA sequence variation points to a stable or shrinking population structure. 
  • http://www.mnn.com/earth-matters/animals/photos/lazarus-species-13-extinct-animals-found-alive/laotian-rock-ratLaotian rock ratThis species was first discovered for sale as meat at a market in Thakhek, Khammouan, in Laos in 1996, and was considered so unusual and distinct from any other living rodent that it was given its own family. Then in 2006, after a systematic reanalysis, the Laotian rock rat was reclassified — incredibly — to belong to an ancient fossil family that was thought to have gone extinct 11 million years ago. Return trips to Laos by the Wildlife Conservation Society have uncovered several other specimens, raising hopes that the animal may not be as rare as once thought.

Using the same technology = we can create Project Lazarus a global map to help identify extinct species and species that are at risk.This takes our DISCRETE EVENT of looking for MOA and turns it into a repeatable platform and relationship with the globe.http://www.projectfreeworld.org/
