The Mammal Society exists to study, monitor and protect the 101 species of terrestrial and marine mammals found in and around Britain and Ireland.
The Mammal Society’s Mammals of the British Isles, now in its fourth edition, is the definitive handbook on British and Irish land and sea mammals. It is joined by books in the Mammal Society Species Series - including titles such as The Badger, Stoats and Weasels, and Bats - and titles in the Mammal Society Occasional Publications Series, such as Live Trapping of Small Mammals and The Analysis of Owl Pellets.
UK BAP Mammals is a guide to the best advice on surveying and protecting eight priority species in the UK Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP) in serious decline, where a shortage of up-to-date records is hindering conservation.
Eighteen land mammals are listed as priority species, including red squirrel, harvest mouse, brown hare, hedgehog, wildcat, and water vole.
The Mammal Society was founded in 1954 to champion science-led mammal conservation. The society runs many training courses each year on mammal conservation and identification, and on survey and monitoring techniques.
