Animals on the Edge - Making a Difference

The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™ lists around 3,000 endangered mammal species. Although the individual reasons that these animals are threatened are many and varied, from the destruction of habitat and illegal hunting through to global warming, there exists a more fundamental problem - that of the on-going conflict between animals and people sharing the same pieces of land.

Animals on the Edge is a not-for-profit program of Living Earth, conceived by conservationist and film maker, Leo Grillo, and wildlife photographer, Chris Weston. Their goal is to conserve and protect wildlife by bringing together local communities and decision makers, and proposing economy-based solutions that provide people with a financial and social incentive to conserve wildlife.

The Animals on the Edge program began in 2008 with co-founder Chris Weston beginning a series of discovery assignments with the aim of exposing the route causes of the problems facing threatened wildlife and identifying probable solutions for future implementation. At the same time, Weston has been photographing some of the world's most endangered species for the book Animals on the Edge - Reporting from the Frontline of Extinction that is due for puplication in Autumn 2009.
