Mission 4 - Mammal detective
Help us understand just how much mammals use and need our gardens. Many mammals, like bats, foxes and hedgehogs visit our gardens after dark and so we dont really know the scale of garden use by these elusive nighttime visitors. By taking part in this mission you'll be giving us vital information about these often under recorded animals, so we can understand which resources are most important to their survival.
