Runnin' Wild

Rewilding invokes in many of us, returning the large charismatic species to an area they once inhabited to restore that ecosystem

On a much smaller scale is the import of harvest mice (Micromys minutus) from East Kilbride to Ealing. They are an endangered species and prefer warmer and drier conditions "than they would encounter normally in the wild in Scotland."

The mice are from the Calderglen Zoo in South Lanarkshire.

This work is part of the Ealing Wildlife Group project.

This BBC video (1m 45s) is about rewilding of the harvest mouse.
