The water vole is the UK’s fastest declining mammal and is now protected from harm by law. Immortalised as ‘Ratty' in Wind in the Willows, the water vole was once common sight along out Gloucestershire water ways.

The last 20 years have seen an 83% decrease in populations due to habitat loss and predation by the non-native American mink.

Our Cotswold Rivers Living Landscape programme is dedicated to reconnecting the Cotswold river systems and the recovery of water vole habitats. 

Water Vole does not come with a soft toy.
