Here we shall look at the ten most endangered species.
Hedgehogs have been declining dramatically since the 1950s. Once, there were over 50 million Hedgehogs in the wild, in the 1950s. However, today, they have declined dramatically - were only under a million Hedgehogs are thought to exist in the wild today.
They have declined a massive 80% across the UK. Once, there was 4 million Brown Hares in the wild across Britain, now, there is an estimated only 700,000.
8. Natterjack Toad
They are so rare, that they are protected by the government. There are only 200 Natterjack Toads left in the wild, there are 100 males, and 100 females.
Since the introduction of the American Grey Squirrel, the Red Squirrel has been in decline. As the Red Squirrel is much smaller than its American counterpart, and therefore, has found it harder to compete to survive for found with the grey, in order to survive.
The Red Squirrel is a protected species, and is largely confined to Scotland. Once, there were 3.5 million Red Squirrels across the British countryside, today however, there is only 120,000 remaining Red Squirrels.
They are mainly found in England. There are as little as 14,000 Turtle Doves across England and Wales today, acording to the RSPB.
