London's wildlife is in trouble, according to a wide-ranging study published today by a coalition of conservation and research groups. London's heathland and woodland are under threat as are the capital's gardens and other informal spaces.

Scientists working side-by-side from 25 wildlife organisations have compiled a stock take of our native species; the first of its kind in the UK. The State of Nature report reveals that 60% of the species studied have declined over recent decades.
