UK Biodiversity Action Plan – Report 2007

The Report on The Species and Habitat Review 2007 to the UK Biodiversity Partnership, part of the UK Government’s response to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) (signed in 1992), has today been published and shows that the number of endangered species in Britain has almost doubled in 13 years. There are now 1,149 species of plants, mammals, birds and insects, and 67 different types of habitat under threat from climate change and human activity.
