Interview with Ali Hauser of Herts & Middlesex Wildlife Trust
On the show today we heard from Ali Hauser from the Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust. Ali talked about the 'Wetlands Water Voles Project' that she is working on at the moment. The project has been set up to protect water voles in Hertfordshire.
Unfortunatley, the population of water voles has decreased by 90% over the past few years so this is a really important project. However, you can still see them in the Lea Valley area although they are difficult to spot! The picture of a water vole will hopefully assist you in your search.
Even if you don't het to see any water voles, you should still get to see some dragon flies and some interesting birds.
