The People's Trust for Endangered Species are just about to kick off their annual Mammals on Roads Survey.

This a great chance to do your bit for Britain's wildlife and let PTES know what you've spotted.  

It may not be quite the activity you should be doing when driving - but if you're a passenger in a car, this would be a great way to help wildlife by monitoring mammals on the road this July, August or September.  

So far, over 500,000 kilometres of road have been surveyed through Mammals on Roads.

And the public's findings from these annual sightings of wildlife have alerted PTES to problems such as the dramatic decline in hedgehogs - they were the impetus for the charity's hedgehog projects and surveys.  

So the survey needs to know what you see - whether the mammals be dead or alive - on a dedicated car journey of more than 20 miles.  

This could be a great activity to do with the kids in the car en route to your summer holiday destination.  See who can spot the most!
