Last chance to sign up for sur­vey

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Kent Business Update -

If you’re in­ter­ested in wildlife spot­ting it’s your last chance to sign up for Peo­ple’s Trust for En­dan­gered Species (PTES) ‘Mam­mals on Roads’ sur­vey, which runs un­til the end of the month. PTES is call­ing on vol­un­teers up and down the coun­try to record any sight­ings of mam­mals, dead or healthy, that they spot on their car jour­neys via their mo­bile phones and tablets. The free PTES Mam­mals on Roads app is avail­able from Google Play and the App Store and vol­un­teers can view their sight­ings via in­ter­ac­tive maps online. Each car jour­ney must be 20 miles or more on sin­gle­car­riage ways in one day. PTES says your sur­vey find­ings are vi­tal in help­ing to mon­i­tor the chang­ing state of Bri­tain’s wildlife pop­u­la­tions. For those with­out smart phones but keen to take part, the sur­vey can be com­pleted online (register at www.ptes.org/ get-in­volved where Mam­mals on Roads is listed un­der the sur­veys sec­tion) or on pa­per with a printed sur­vey pack. Email mor@ptes.org or call 020 7498 4533 to re­quest a pack. PTES is a UK con­ser­va­tion char­ity cre­ated in 1977 to en­sure a fu­ture for en­dan­gered species through­out the world and works to pro­tect some of our most threat­ened wildlife species and habi­tats.
