Hedgehogs in Britain have officially been put on the conservation Red List as ‘vulnerable to extinction’. They’re just one reason why it’s vital we record and monitor wildlife, ensuring we spot changes while there’s time to act. We can’t afford to take wildlife for granted.
The People’s Trust for Endangered Species have run Mammals on Roads for 20 years, building a picture of how wildlife is changing. If you’re driving somewhere with a passenger, you can help them. A new app this year, collects counts of wildlife (dead or alive) that can tell them about the wider population and, over time, how their numbers are changing.
The app’s available from the App Store and Google Play. If you’re travelling in the months ahead, please help them record and monitor the wild mammals of Britain and ensure we don’t lose them.
Thank you for all your support.
