People’s Trust for Endangered Species is launching the first National Water Vole Monitoring Programme (NWVMP) across Britain to establish where water voles remain and how many there are. The knowledge gained will guide our best conservation efforts.

How to get involved

The first step to taking part is to complete a short registration form with your contact details and your water vole monitoring experience. Once you have successfully registered, you will be able to select a site to survey. If you are already surveying a site, then you will be able to register this site with the survey.

The second part of the survey will be to visit your site and plan your survey route, survey your site in May and then submit your records online.

We recommend that you read our guide to taking part below first about what each step involves and why. Once you are happy with what is expected you can then register to take part.
