EDGE Goals

The EDGE of Existence programme seeks to:

  • Raise awareness of the world's most Evolutionarily Distinct and Globally Endangered (EDGE) species
  • Identify the current status of poorly known and possibly extinct EDGE species
  • Develop and implement conservation strategies for all EDGE species not currently being protected
  • Increase conservation capacity in the countries in which EDGE species occur, through supporting and training local scientists and conservation professionals to undertake research into the focal EDGE species
  • Support all ongoing conservation activities for EDGE species
