Extinction Britain: Ralph Steadman creates images of UK’s threatened creatures


Last night we covered the devastating report on the State of Nature which warned that one in seven species of UK wildlife is in danger of being lost forever.

Illustrator Ralph Steadman is best known for his celebrated caricatures of political figures. But for the last eight years he has been creating images of the UK’s threatened creatures after being being asked to make an illustration of an extinct bird back in 2012 by filmmaker Ceri Levy. We went to meet  both men in Kent.
