What is the Mammal Society?
We strive for a future in which sustainable mammal populations thrive as part of healthy and diverse ecosystems benefiting people and nature across the British Isles.
- We work to ensure a bright future for mammals in the British Isles by inspiring, informing, supporting and enhancing conservation projects and policies that protect and restore native mammal populations and their habitats
- We empower conservationists, students, citizen scientists and nature champions to play a key role in mammal conservation now and in the future through providing training, resources and survey activations
- We seek to build public awareness of and support for mammal conservation through education, communications and campaigns
The work of the Mammal Society is underpinned by these core values:
- We are science-based
- We are committed to being data-driven, and to using and promoting robust scientific evidence to inform conservation strategy and practice, and our own priorities
- We are collaborative
- We believe that conservation is a collective effort, and we work collaboratively with a diverse range of partners, stakeholders, and communities to achieve positive outcomes for nature and people
- We are agile
- We recognise that conservation challenges are complex and ever-evolving, and we commit to being adaptable and responsive, embracing innvoation and continuously evaluating and improving our approach
- We are inclusive
- We believe that addressing the urgent challenges in mammal conservation requires diverse perspectives, and we strive to engage and empower all stakeholders in our work
What We Do
We believe that successful mammal conservation outcomes are underpinned by three key areas:
Science | Support | Skills
We set our organisational vision at the top, meaning that it is within our remit to act to achieve outcomes in all areas of this pyramid as they are all inter-dependent.
We recognise that our specialism is in gathering, analysing and serving accurate data.
