Abstract

Rare and endangered species attract attention everywhere; this is certainly true within the Western world. During any inventory work at the stations, questions about rare and endangered species come up quickly. It is a very popular topic and many individuals and organizations are interested in trying to save and study these species, or at least to claim doing so in public. It must be seen as a phenomenon why this topic ranks so high on the agenda for the public, in the commercial media, and with many conservationists and students? Perhaps rare species are indicative of how we as a society, perceive, interact with, and understand nature?
