A Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) spokeswoman said "everyone has a role to play" in protecting the UK's wildlife:
Losing even one species is one too many. That's why we're doing more to improve the natural environment than ever before.
We have already invested £7.5 million to create 12 new Nature Improvement Areas and established 48 Local Nature Partnerships.
Everyone has a role to play in protecting and encouraging wildlife for future generations.
