Hazel dormice

Hazel dormice are enigmatic and endearing. They are also threatened with extinction. Join us in helping to bring them back from the brink.

Dormice are hanging on mostly in southern parts of England and Wales. Our national monitoring shows the population has declined by half since 2000. Changes in woodland management, farming practices and loss of hedgerows have all taken a heavy toll on their living space, as well as climate change. We’re working hard to reverse the decline and promote recovery in British woodlands.
