For a few years, the island fox was a rare find in the wild. But thanks to speedy conservation efforts, the tiny West Coast relative of the mainland gray fox is on the rebound.

The agreement was an exceptional move for the group, which has only taken up three other health issues in the past — HIV, non-communicable diseases and Ebola.
