Help the rabbits (and this one isn't an April Fool!)
We were therefore delighted to read (via Country Living) that the Mammal Society has begun a project to map rabbits, hares and other countryside creatures via a new smart phone app. The app features clever hints and tips to allow you to recognise the different animals living in your local area, and even allows you to play clips of their calls to make your identification. The project is starting in the south east, with the aim of eventually rolling out across the country.
Mammals such as rabbits, squirrels, hedgehogs and foxes are an integral part of our ecosystem. and any change in their numbers can have a knock on effect to other animals.
If you spot any rabbits in your local area, take a snap and we'll features them on our Twitter account!
