Los pequeños mamíferos suelen pasar desapercibidos en favor de mamíferos carismáticos de mayor tamaño. En general, han sido poco estudiados y poco representados en términos de financiación y acciones de conservación. Esto significa que la mayoría de las especies del SMSG carecen de conocimientos ecológicos básicos y que muy pocos trabajan para conservarlas. El SMSG es una red mundial de investigadores y conservacionistas que trabajan para mejorar el conocimiento científico de las más de 3.000 especies de pequeños mamíferos del mundo y promover la conservación de las más amenazadas.
