RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil — In this October 10, 2012 photo, a golden Lion Tamarin hugs a tree in the Atlantic Forest region of Silva Jardim here in Rio de Janeiro. The charismatic little monkey is bouncing back from near extinction just in time to run for mascot of Rio's 2016 Olympics. The recovery effort that raised their population to 1,700 has become an international example of effective conservation, top experts say. (Photo: AP/Felipe Dana)
