Reintroduced Species - 17 April 2018

Since 1800 it is estimated that more than 400 species of animals and plants have become extinct in the UK. There are many reasons for this, including loss and degradation of habitat, and species becoming increasingly isolated from neighbouring populations.

But this does not have to be the end of the story. Several successful reintroduction programmes have brought species back to their native lands from other countries, and this collection is a celebration of the successful reintroduction of various flora and fauna across the UK
