This area of our site is for recording hazel dormice in the UK. Regular monitors can enter online records for the National Dormouse Monitoring Programme (NDMP) and anyone can record one off sightings and signs on the National Dormouse Database (NDD). Dormouse monitors can also complete reporting requirements under Natural England dormouse licences. Choose an option below to get started and help our dormice.
