About this book

This book is a celebration of the mammal conservation work carried out by The Vincent Wildlife Trust over the last 40 years. This charitable trust was founded, funded and led by Vincent Weir from its inception in 1975 until the early 2000s. It records their work on the conservation of rare mammal species, most notably the otter, water vole and horseshoe bats. The book also touches on some of Vincent's other notable conservation achievements – for butterflies, plants, reptiles and amphibians.
