Baby dormice from across Kent’s woodlands are being rescued as ‘Operation Dormice Baby Rescue’ enters full swing this week.
These precious little babies, perhaps Britain’s most endangered species are being scoured for by dedicated volunteers and urgently rushed back to Wildwood Trust’s Dormouse Rescue Centre.
The Wildwood Trust conservation team are mounting a round the clock effort to welcome the dormice babies some as little as 6 days old and ensure their survival this winter.
