Publications and reports
Our experts collect, analyse and publish information and evidence to influence decision-makers to safeguard and restore wildlife - both locally in our two counties and nationally too.
We collect data on the ground and analyse it to help create a better environment for wildlife. Read our most recent reports here:
National Water Vole Database and Mapping report - we led on collating and mapping data from across the country about water volses. Our analysis showed that over ten years to 2017 water vole distribution declined dramatically by 30% across England and Wales. Read the report or more about our work to protect water voles.
