01/17/2007:"Evolutionarily Distinct & Globally Endangered"
With a description like that, I'm surprised that I or most of my friends didn't make the list. Edgeofexistence.org is dedicated to to conserving "the world's most Evolutionarily Distinct and Globally Endangered (EDGE) species by implementing the research and conservation actions needed to secure their future". Good enough for me. Even if you don't feel like donating, their site has some freaky little creatures that are interesting to look at.
