Garden Wildlife Health project

Garden Wildlife Health moves in to its second year – a citizen science project, GWH is monitoring the health of British garden wildlife. It investigates infectious diseases as well as toxicity, trauma and predation.

How you can help: – if you find a sick or dead animal in your garden – their focus is on amphibians, reptiles, garden birds and hedgehogs – then log on to their website.

This will allow you to report it and they may even ask you to make the body available for a post-mortem.

Hopefully you won’t be finding too many dead animals in your wildlife garden, but problems such as mass die-offs of frogs in ponds need to be monitored if we are to take a scientific approach to protecting our wildlife.
