Help us save the water vole

Have your say

YORKSHIRE Wildlife Trust is running a project to protect one of the UK’s most endangered mammals –– and needs your help.

They are hoping people will help them protect the water vole by getting involved in survey work this summer!

From April they will need volunteers to help conduct water vole surveys in the Dearne Valley to identify where they are living and how they are faring since the 2007 flood.

A spokesman said: “This project will continue to develop additional habitat, which will act as a refuge for the species allowing it to escape future flooding events, as well as risk predation from the introduced American mink.
