12. Re-introductions

Where species have recently gone extinct re-introductions could be considered. Priority should be given to habitat restoration to  create the conditions needed for missing species and to encourage their natural spread – through habitat corridors, for example. Any re-introductions should be part of a regional or national scheme and need comprehensive local community consultation and consent.
