Sponsor a Dormouse Nest Box – Devon


Book now

Provide a home and a future for the Devon Dormouse.

Dormice are in trouble. The population has been in steady decline since 2000. In the space of 20 years, the national population fell by an alarming 51%.

With the fragmentation and outright loss of their essential habitat, dormice become isolated with limited food, vulnerable to predators, struggling to survive.

We are working hard to reverse the decline and help the Devon dormouse to thrive once again. You can help us save the dormouse from extinction…

With your help we can:
  • rescue and rehabilitate dormice in trouble
  • successfully breed and release new generations of dormice
  • extend and improve our dormouse survey activities
  • enhance and refine our scientific understanding of the Devon dormouse
  • fully train and license our keepers in the latest survey techniques
  • teach and inspire the next generation of conservationists

When you sponsor a nest box you’ll be joining the army of Wildwood supporters who are helping us to save British wildlife.

With your sponsorship you’ll receive:
  • regular up-dates from our surveys to see who’s living in your nest box
  • picture of your personalised nest box in its secret location on our survey site
  • certificate of sponsorship to confirm your participation
  • fact sheet all about the dormouse
