Hazel dormice are one of Britain’s most enigmatic species, but few people ever actually see one. Despite once being a common feature of our woodlands, the population has declined by over 50%! 

To combat the decline the People’s Trust for Endangered Species (PTES) and partners have released a total of 1,078 dormice over the last 30 years.
