The annual 1km square survey
The North West Brown Hare Survey is now online. You are now able to download and print off a survey map and survey pack. Simply visit the interactive map and click on the hare icon in the location that you would like to survey. From there you can download both the 1km2 survey map and all the information and documents you need to complete the survey. Once you’ve completed the survey, simply fill in the spreadsheet provided and email it back.
This system will make the annual survey a lot more sustainable in terms of project officer time and allow for the results to be shared alot quicker.
Still feel free to get in touch if you’ve got any questions. Otherwise, good luck and have a great time.
We are very keen to hear from farmers and other landowners who are interested in the hares on their land. A particularly valuable contribution can be made by those farmers and landowners who would be prepared to complete an annual questionnaire about the numbers of hares on their land. It’s simple to complete and by repeating the questionnaire annually, you can make a really valuable contribution to our understanding of Brown Hare population trends in our area. Further details .
Spread the word!
We need as many people to contribute records to this project as possible, so please tell all your friends about it!
