Grace, in a recent comment on the blog, pointed me to an MSN article featuring 10 species from the EDGE (Evolutionary Distinct and Globally Endangered) of Existence conservation program. (As I am American, I can’t get myself to write “programme.”) It is a very neat program that aims at preserving species that are the most endangered and the most distinct from other species, both physically and behaviorally.

As I did not want to spoil on anything on MSN’s list, I chose to show pictures of a species I really like that was not featured in the article, the saiga antelope.
