Water Voles

Water voles are Britain’s fastest declining wild mammal and have disappeared from many parts of the UK due to the loss of suitable habitats and the rise of predators.

A Forgotten Landscape trained volunteers to monitor water vole numbers by surveying ditches and rhines – 66km altogether – and worked to restore their habitats by clearing 3.2 km of scrub.
