While the large marsh grasshopper is the biggest and most handsome of all British grasshoppers, it's also one of the rarest, surviving almost exclusively in the valley mires and wet heaths of the New Forest and Dorset.
Citizen Zoo in partnership with Norfolk Wildlife Trust, the Wildlife Trust for Beds, Cambs & Northants and Natural England have been successful in reintroducing the species to several sites across Norfolk.
This community-led project involves volunteers rearing grasshoppers in their own homes for release.
