Dormouse families found at reintroduction site

Home // News // Dormouse families found at reintroduction site

We were thrilled to learn that our dormice released into the wild back in June have already started making  family homes for themselves.

On a recent check our volunteers found three dormice with babies and another pregnant female. This is great evidence that the dormice are settling in well and will go on to build a healthy wild population.

21 pairs of captive hazel dormice were released into a new woodland home earlier this summer as part of our long running efforts to save the species.

Thank you to everyone who has donated so far to make a future for our dormice.

You can give today to ensure their homes are protected for the future and more dormice families can thrive.

Let's keep in touch...
