Hampshire County Dormouse Survey 2021
Nationally, dormouse numbers appear to be declining by about 50% a year, and their range also contracting. Hampshire should be a stronghold for the species, but there are indications that populations are declining. To date, no systematic survey of a County for dormice has been undertaken, so we would like to be the first to try and achieve this, to get a better understanding of distribution across Hampshire. This will help target future conservation efforts in the County.
