Back from the brink

BBC Wildlife Magazine - - Chequered Skippers -

This am­bi­tious project, made pos­si­ble by £4.6 mil­lion from the Her­itage Lottery Fund, aims to save 20 species from ex­tinc­tion in Eng­land and benefit over 200 more through 19 projects across the coun­try, from the tip of Corn­wall to Northum­ber­land. A host of con­ser­va­tion or­gan­i­sa­tions are com­ing to­gether with Nat­u­ral Eng­land to help res­cue ev­ery­thing from the wil­low tit, sand lizard and pasque­flower to rare in­ver­te­brates such as the che­quered skip­per, bar­berry car­pet moth, lady­bird spi­der, shrill carder bum­ble­bee and violet click beetle.
