Every day our wildlife is rapidly declining because of urbanisation, climate change and human competition. With one in ten species at risk of extinction in the UK alone, is it fair to prioritise the conservation of one species over another? Hana Ayoob is joined by ecologist Rebecca Nesbit (Tickets for The Ark) and zoologist Sophie Pavelle (Forget Me Not) to discuss the tough questions and trade-offs that conservation must consider.
