Water Vole Habitat Surveyors Wanted!

Water Vole Habitat Surveyors Wanted!

We aim to run 3 training sessions over the summer months to enable people to identify water vole habitats. We then hope people will survey their local patch and let us know where suitable habitat is found. The data gathered aims to inform future water vole conservation work in the region.

The first training session will be a full day on Saturday 25th May in the Whixall area (details to be confirmed).

For those that are particularly keen or perhaps cannot make the training day there may be the opportunity to join the Whitchurch water vole group on one of their surveys in the area – places are limited!
