Endangered species decline by 60 per cent in 40 years

Source: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/wildlife/10402295...

From The Telegraph 

Although the report did not provide details of individual species, separate data published earlier this year found that turtle doves and mountain hares were among the worst hit species.

The "status of priority species" data, a new annual analysis of Britain's endangered wildlife, was published for the first time yesterday by the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra).

Defra publishes data on individual wildlife groups such as birds, bats and butterflies each year, but this is the first time it has collated the information to reveal a broader view of the state of Britain's wildlife.

The findings show that while endangered birds and mammals have seen a slight overall growth since 1970, at-risk butterfly species have seen a 40 per cent drop in population size and moths an 88 per cent drop.

They back up the State of Nature report, launched by Sir David Attenborough in May, which found that more than half of Britain's plant and animal species are in decline.

The analysis of 3,000 species found that turtle doves were the worst-hit birds, having undergone a 97 per cent decline since 1970, while V-moth populations plunged by 99 per cent.
