2012 has been a roller coaster of a year for animal news. Here we've rounded-up the top stories for successes in conservation, discoveries and extinctions of species, red alerts for worrying trends we can turn around if we act quickly, and the best photo galleries of animals living and extinct. Thankfully there is more good news than bad news rounded up here.

So don't be discouraged with the troubling news -- keep clicking through the slides because there is lots to be happy about despite the losses we've endured during 2012.
