Last chance to sign up for survey
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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
