60th Spring Conference & AGM
Our Spring Conference is a chance to meet and network with fellow mammal experts and enthusiasts in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Hear the results of latest research, and discuss key issues for mammal research and conservation.
The 60th anniversary conference came to Birmingham, to reflect the inaugural meeting held in the city in April 1954. We were celebrating success and look forward at what we together can achieve over the next 60 years for mammals.
