Resurgence of endangered sturgeon in the UK sparks hope for conservation efforts

The critically endangered sturgeon, once declared ‘royal’ by King Edward II, is being reintroduced to British waters. Led by the Zoological Society of London (ZSL), conservationists have launched the UK Sturgeon Conservation Strategy and Action Plan to revive the ancient species. Dam construction and overfishing led to their decline.

Inspired by successful conservation efforts in France and Germany, the UK initiative aims to restore habitats and migratory routes while preventing accidental captures. Public support is crucial through awareness and reporting sightings. The resurgence of sturgeon offers hope for their conservation in the UK.
