Many species of mammals have undergone a decline in distribution and population size over the last few decades, due to habitat loss and fragmentation. Mammals often attract more public interest than other groups of animals, due to the larger species such as elephants and the big cats. There are, however, many small, inconspicuous mammals also in need of conservation.
