The exclusively student conference is an opportunity for students at all stages of study to get involved with The Mammal Society and meet others studying mammals. It includes all-student talks and poster presentations, a chance to quiz experts about their career paths into mammalogy and plenty of opportunities to network with the other students and make life long friends.
Breakout Sessions - practical learning
Run by experts in the field, these break out sessions will give you an introduction to various practical skills & knowledge you need in mammal conservation work. You can attend two of the four sessions.

Attending conferences is something that shows you are dedicated to getting involved and learning more about the mammal convervation world.
