Report a Capture or Road Kill

    We may well wish to follow up your capture by getting in touch with you. Please be assured that your contact details will be used for no other purpose, and will not be passed to a third party. If you are able to send us a small tissue sample (tip of ear) for DNA analysis we would be extremely grateful. If you can help with that please tick the "Yes" box and fill in your address. We will immediately send you details about taking the sample and an addressed, postage-paid, return envelope. DNA samples help us to learn more about the American mink population and results will be published on the website in due course (* Required).
