Wildlife challenge

An environmental steering group has set the Government a tough challenge to rescue 116 rapidly declining or very rare wildlife species and 14 threatened habitats, at a cost approaching pounds 40m a year. The report, published today, contains a lengthy set of costed rescue plans, drawn up by civil servants from the Department of the Environment, together with university experts, government agencies, and wildlife conservation bodies.
