Making Space for Nature on the Marlborough Downs

Owl Box Initiative

We're working with the Owl Box Initiative to provide habitat and nest boxes for barn owls across the Downs.  You can get involved too and help scientists understand more about what type of small mammals live near you.  You can carry out your own experiment by making and setting up your very own ink tracking tunnel.  By identifying the small mammal footprints left behind in your tunnel and downloading the Mammal Society's Mammal Mapper App, you can enter your survey results and be a scientist too!  Click on the image below to download the instructions and get tracking!
