Welcome to The Species Recovery Trust
There are over nine-hundred native species in the UK which are currently classed as under threat, with several hundreds more widespread but known to be in significant decline. The countryside is now bereft of many species which were a familiar sight a mere generation ago.
A small number of these species are on the absolute brink of existence, poised to become extinct in our lifetimes.
Each year several millions are spent on conservation, and yet animals and plants are still slipping through the net. However, when targeted effectively, many rare species have been shown to thrive.
The Species Recovery Trust is committed to halting the loss of some of the rarest species in the UK.
Our primary aim is to remove 50 species from the edge of extinction in the UK by the year 2050 through effective conservation strategies informed by detailed scientific knowledge.
