Species Hub

Browse the Species Hub below to learn more about mammal ecology, distribution and conservation. The British Isles are home to around 60 species of terrestrial mammal, including bats. Nearly 90 if you count marine mammals seen in British and Irish waters. See the full list of mammals of the British Isles here.

Hub Development

To make this hub more useful, we plan to develop new features will include how to ID and survey different species, what research is being done and is still needed and how to get involved in mammal research and conservation. We are currently seeking funding and we welcome your donations to help us towards this goal.

In the meantime, our MaWSE project has developed comprehensive resources on mammals, that include distribution maps, images, videos and sounds, and information on confusion species.
