A new and innovative survey tool to track footprints of small to medium mammals. The tunnels are placed along hedgerows or other edge habitat overnight, and baited Footprint tunnels are a new, non-invasive tool to look for the presence of mammals in a habitat by identifying their footprints. Mammals walk over ink-pads to reach bait inside, and leave their footprints on special paper as they do so. It's a great survey for the whole family to find out what passes through your garden in the night!

The footprint tunnel was initially developed at Nottingham Trent University in an attempt to replace spotlight transect surveys, which weren't very effective at detecting hegdehogs. The Mammal Society ran trials, which found the tunnels to be statistically more effective at detecting hedgehogs, a difficult species to survey for.
