The Great Crested Newt has suffered a major decline in Britain with newt habitats becoming increasingly fragmented through development, with the result that they are now a highly protected species.

The Great Crested Newt has been found on a number of sites that d20 have been working on and we have worked with conservation experts to preserve their habitats by constructing "newt barriers" around working sites to help preserve their numbers.
