EDGE is Four Years Old!

This week sees the 4th anniversary of the launch of the EDGE of Existence programme!

To celebrate, Carly the programme manager, made a special echidna shaped cake! It was delicious!

The past four years have been very successful with the launch of Mammals, Amphibians and Coral Reefs programmes that has seen 17 EDGE Fellows to date undertaking conservation work across the globe.

Successes include the re-discovery of the Horton Plains slender loris and Attenborough’s long-beaked echidna and most excitingly the discovery of a potentially new species, the Boni Forest elephant-shrew!

We hope the next four years are as successful as the past four years and if you would like to support EDGE Fellows in more conservation projects you can find out more here.
