About the event
Join Christine Gregory (local author and photographer) as she tells the story of the plight of the water vole, a species occasionally spotted in the Whitworth Park. The water vole has the unenviable status of being Britain’s fastest declining mammal with populations having dropped by 80% in the 1990’s. Christine will give the reasons for this decline and describe the efforts being made by conservationists, fishing clubs, volunteers and land managers to save remaining water vole colonies across the country. She will call on decades of research into water vole decline as well as her own fieldwork and photographic documentation of the water courses of Derbyshire. Christine will have copies of her book on the water vole which Chris Packham has described as ‘a field guide to the species, an encyclopaedia of volery and a volume of vole stuff to inform and interest all’.
