Restricted to just a few Mediterranean islands, Bedriaga’s rock lizard is highly vulnerable to the loss and degradation of its rocky habitat. At high altitudes on Corsica, where the species’ habitat is still relatively prevalent, Bedriaga’s rock lizard does not appear to be threatened, and the population is relatively stable (1). However, on Sardinia the species’ habitat has a somewhat patchy distribution, and many populations are isolated. Consequently, these populations have a greater extinction risk, especially as the climate becomes increasingly unpredictable due to climate change (7). On both islands, Bedriaga’s rock lizard is further threatened by the tourist industry encroaching upon its habitat, and the species is now less abundant in the lowland areas of its range (1).
