Red Light for the Sand Lizard in Britain

K. Corbett
1969 Oryx  
The sand lizard in Britain is well on the way to extinction, thanks to the destruction of its favoured habitats -sand dunes and dry heath. The author, who has been engaged in full-time research on the surviving populations, has started breeding sand lizards in captivity, using animals taken from sites that are being destroyed, and hopes to reintroduce them in protected areas.
