The perfect nestbox

During 2015-2016, researches were made about the pros and the cons of blue foxes’ nestboxes. The goal of the project was to decrease the mortality of blue fox puppies. Four different kinds of nestboxes were tested during the whelping season of 2015. The temperature and humidity, amongst other things were tested. There were no signs of big differences to be found in the nestboxes, which makes it difficult to know if the disparity was a result of the nestbox or the cool summerheat. On the grounds of this, a new similiar project will take place during the next whelping season.
