Lost life: England’s lost and threatened species (NE233)

Produced to coincide with the International Year of Biodiversity, this Lost life report identifies nearly 500 animals and plants that have become extinct in England – practically all within the last two centuries. It also highlights how habitat loss, inappropriate management, environmental pollution and pressure from non-native species have all played a part in the erosion of England’s biodiversity.
