Additional: The great crested newt is the least common amphibian in Warwickshire and is protected by European legislation. Threatened with extinction in several counties, Britain is one of its remaining strongholds. Therefore, it is vital that its numbers are maintained here. Threats facing great crested newts include the in-filling of ponds, the introduction of fish to ponds and loss of the terrestrial habitat on which they depend for part of their lives. Warwickshire Wildlife Trust is working to counter these threats by protecting and recreating the habitats where these fascinating amphibians live.
