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.
"Gardens provide a valuable lifeline for species like starlings, toads, hedgehogs and butterflies, which are struggling to find homes in the wider countryside.
"Although the overall problem is huge, the solution can start on a small scale, right on our doorsteps. It doesn't matter what sort of garden you have, what size it is, or even if you have no garden at all, we need everyone to help by turning their outside space into a wildlife haven.
"Our aim is to provide one million homes for nature across the UK, because if there's no home for nature, then there's no nature - it really is that serious."
The RSPB has launched a campaign to encourage all of us to provide a place for wildlife to flourish in our gardens and outside space.
We're being told unless more is done to help the wildlife in the capital, we'll lose some of our most-loved species.
