100 Harvest Mice released onto the Gatewarth Site, Warrington in May 2003 in conjunction with Warrington Borough Council. These mice were bred at the Zoo, had their veterinary screening undertaken and were micro-chipped by the Zoo`s veterinary team. 270 Harvest Mice were released onto Zoo land adjacent to the Shropshire Union Canal in Upton-by-Chester in mid-June 2003. The aim of the project is to establish a re-introduction protocol for this species, which can be used world wide as and when Progress: 100 Harvest Mice released onto the Gatewarth Site, Warrington in May 2003 in conjunction with Warrington Borough Council.

The aim of the project is to establish a re-introduction protocol for this species, which can be used world wide as and when required. These mice were released in a 50:50 sex ratio and a 50:50 `hard` versus `soft` release experiment, and in addition 20 animals (10 males and 10 females, 10 hard released and 10 soft released) were radio-collared and tracked for a period of 20 days, 24 hours per day, post release. This was to determine survival, dispersal and habitat choice. 31/12/2003
