The Salmon, the red-backed shrike, the beautiful demoiselle, the snake’s-head fritillary – all these have become extinct as breeding species in Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland during the course of this century. Even now, despite an ever-increasing interest in conservation, with a network of nature reserves covering the two counties and the city, many animals and plants remain rare and under threat. This Red Data Book details these endangered species, identifies the threats facing them, and suggests ways of conserving their populations for the future.
