Scientists aim to save ‘EDGE’ species
Zoological Society of London lists 10 on the edge of extinction


Jan 15, 2007

LONDON - Scientists launched a bid Tuesday to save some of the world’s rarest and most neglected creatures from extinction.

With an initial list of 10 — including a venomous shrew-like creature, an egg-laying mammal and the world’s smallest bat — the program will give last ditch conservation aid where to date there has been little or none.

“We are focusing on EDGE species — that means they are Evolutionarily Distinct and Globally Endangered,” said Zoological Society of London scientist Jonathan Baillie.
