10 SPECIES FACING EXTINCTION IN WANSTEAD AND HOW TO HELP SAVE THEM

Many creatures that were once a regular sight in Wanstead are becoming rare. The Wren Wildlife Group, London Wildlife Trust and Wild Wanstead have identified 10 species under threat of extinction in Wanstead unless we act to save them. Some of these species are in trouble across the UK. Others are common species that are locally endangered because of how we treat our gardens and outdoor space. The UK is already one of the most nature-depleted countries in the world. But it’s not too late to stop the decline of wildlife in Wanstead. If we create the right habitats in our gardens and parks, it will help populations recover and nature will have a chance to thrive on our doorsteps – now and in the future. Find out more about the 10 species and simple steps you can take to help save them by downloading our Endangered in Wanstead Booket and Quick Guide.
