Here are some of the activities you can help us with:
Water vole monitoring: We require people who can undertake a long (ish) term commitment to monitoring one (or more) sites in the North Pennines for water voles. This usually means being matched up with a farmer in a location convenient for you, on a site where water voles have previosuly been recorded, and undertaking a twice annual count of water vole latrines. Training events are usually arranged in May each year. More details here: Water vole long-term monitoring programme.
