Can You Help?
The Norfolk Mink Project relies on volunteers and works with local landowners, wildlife organisations, fisheries, gamekeepers, householders and local interest groups. One of our main aims is to protect the endangered water vole but in doing so we can also help protect many other wildlife species that mink prey on, helping to safeguard local businesses and livelihoods which are dependent on wildlife tourism, angling and shooting.
The mink rafts and cage traps are provided by the Norfolk Mink Project and your local Mink Co-ordinator will provide the necessary training required. If you are a landowner or have access to a suitable site and would be prepared to help we would love you to get in touch. Even if you cannot set traps, monitoring alone is a very valuable source of information. This allows us to detect the presence of mink and the Mink Co-ordinators can then co-ordinate with other volunteers in that area to increase the chances of getting a capture.
If you are unable to volunteer to run a raft or trap, you can still help. If you are out for a walk, boating or just driving in Norfolk and see a mink, alive or dead, we would like to hear about it.
