The maps above show where dormice have become extinct or rarer in the last century. Map 1 shows where dormice were present (yellow) and where they were common (orange) in Victorian times. Map 2 shows where populations have managed to cling on (yellow) and where they are still common (orange). Map 2 also shows sites where we have reintroduced them to the wild (red dots). Click on the maps to view larger versions. You can find out more about dormouse reintroductions here.

You can play a vital role in protecting dormice by sponsoring a dormouse house for just £5 a month. This will help keep threatened dormice safe and help us release new populations in counties where they have become extinct.
