What are the most important animals for your region of the country?

Impressed by the environmental movement to create the Salmon Nation
and the Buffalo Commons
, I've (barely) begun making a website about key animal species for different regions of the country.
What are the most important animals where you live? They might be the most popular, the most endangered, the most economically important, or a cornerstone for the ecosystem. Do you know of grassroots groups organizing around those animals? Chambers of Commerce trying to bring back a certain animal? Ecology labs that collect data on these animals or count them?
Any other resources or thoughts on this idea are welcome. Did I miss any major projects to restore regional ecosystems while creating a bioregional identity?
