Schedule 5: protected animals

Matthew Chatfield

It might not be the most popular page on Naturenet but this is a perennial favourite which has been there right since day one in 1995, and today the Ranger has updated it. Yes, it has been updated other times since 1995, what do you think we are?

The ladybird spider Eresus niger (now Eresus cinnaberinus) - protected by Schedule 5

So if you ever wondered just which animals (apart from birds) are protected by the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 then this one’s just for you. The Ranger uses this page himself very regularly, as do many others. Many thanks to keen-eyed Samuel Watson for pointing out a mistake on there which prompted a thorough overhaul.
