Water voles in decline
What can we do to help? There is plenty that could be done for this species and the health of our waterways in general: create and maintain large-scale, good-quality habitat; reintroduce water voles in specific areas; control the mink population (an invasive species which has become a huge problem for water voles in some areas).
The wildlife trusts have more details on water vole recovery projects - find out here: www.wildlifetrusts.org/species/water-vole.
