The world’s rarest duck, the Madagascar pochard, has successfully bred 18 ducklings. The Madagascar pochard was believed to have been extinct until its rediscovery by chance on a single small lake in northern Madagascar, where just 22 of the cinnamon-coloured diving duck are left in the wild. Conservationists said the species remains extremely vulnerable to extinction from single events such as pollution or disease outbreak
