For forty years, the Mouse-tailed dormouse was thought to be extinct in Europe, but a specimen was discovered in southeastern Bulgaria in 2017. Thanks to your donations, more than 100 nest boxes were placed, which the Mouse-tailed dormouse uses as a home. It became apparent that a small population of Mouse-tailed dormouse lives in southeastern Bulgaria. Camera traps and transmitters are used to find out what requirements they place on their habitat so that the right measures can be taken to preserve this vulnerable population. Commissioned by the Bulgarian government, The Habitat Foundation will draw up a species protection plan to safeguard this species for future generations.
In more places in Europe, the habitats of plants and animals are under pressure. The Habitat Foundation is committed to learning more about these plants and animals and protecting their habitats. Do you help us? Thanks to your donation we can continue our work.
Alternatively, you can support our work with a gift in kind.
