We hear lots of debate about our environment and the impact of human activity on our wildlife. In those discussions you’ll hear terms like “endangered“, “threatened“, “vulnerable“, and many other words and phrases. Their exact meaning is not always clear, and given the heat and the politics that accompany environmental debate, it’s important to have a clear understanding of what the experts, the campaigners and our elected representatives are actually saying.
