Adder DNA research to help halt declines

BBC Breakfast ran a story this morning on the decline of adders. The Institute of Zoology is running a dna research project to help halt the decline of adder populations. DNA swab samples are being collected from a number of animals in order to ascertain levels of in-breeding. Filming showed Nigel Hand on a reserve in Somerset collecting samples for analysis.
