Martin Stew speaks to Tim Webb from the RSPB, and finds out what we can do in city gardens to save our favourite species.
As urban sprawl and city development increases, the countryside is taken over. Now the RSPB says more needs to be done by each of us to help those species under threat. It's asking us all to create habitats to nurture our wildlife.
Conservationists are calling for help to save the struggling wildlife habitats in London.
It comes following a report by a coalition of wildlife organisations which found that 60% of species that had been studied had suffered declines in the past few decades.
Those in trouble include starlings, hedgehogs, some species of butterfly and ladybird. They are all in danger of further declines without work to provide them with better habitats, according to the RSPB, one of the wildlife groups behind the State of Nature report.
