he Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, Part 1, has several lists of species, known as schedules. These are subject to occasional revision. Unfortunately the scientific names for these species are not normally given in the Act, and in most cases are not included here.
Schedules 5 and 8 of the Act are reviewed every five years as a part of the regular quinquennial review. See DEFRA.
