Scientists ask us to count snails

Scientists want us to count certain types of snails in our gardens, because it can tell them a lot about evolution and global warming.

An organisation called The Open University which is organising the the six-month study called Evolution MegaLab, says it will be one of the largest of its kind.

They want all snail counters to log on to their website and register their results.
