  • The Arctic fox and the hedgehog are endangered species or nearly endangered species that are in focus in a wildlife project that is supposed to help reverse their dwindling numbers.
  • The Swedish WWF and the wildlife trust Norden’s Ark have received funding for the four-year-project.
  • ”It’s really a dream come true for us to be able to do this for the species,” says Therese Wåtz, species expert with the Swedish WWF to Radio Sweden.

One thought on “Wildlife project to save endangered species in Sweden

    I think that it is important to save hedgehogs and arctic foxes because they mean a lot to certain places in the world. If you people down in Sweden don’t understand what I typed I will have the Swedish translation here.

    Jag tror att det är viktigt att rädda igelkottar och fjällrävar eftersom de betyder mycket för vissa platser i världen. Om ni nere i Sverige inte förstår vad jag skrev kommer jag att ha den svenska översättningen här.
