near threatened --- it is a good status :D it means that they are not endangered now, but people should be more careful about them or so :D

Lol well, to me xD I rather have 'em a little "over populated" then "near threatened", but I'm glad their not endangered now ><! Too bad people can't really teach other people lessons about "bad" and "good".
