Rare Ladybird Spider Returned To Dorset

The ladybird spider was once thought extinct but is slowly making a comeback. In 1994 numbers were down to just one colony of 56 individuals but after a project of captive breeding, reintroduction & habitat restoration numbers have now increased to over 1000. To aid the process conservationists are planning to release a new colony of about 30 spiders, at the RSPB's Arne reserve in Dorset in the hope that they will colonise surrounding heathland.
