The UK is home to a wonderful variety of mammals, many of which are unfortunately threatened. Luckily for them, the UK is also home to many motivated students working hard to understand and conserve the UK’s mammals! Mammal research is hugely varied and ranges from understanding individual behaviour to how species can influence entire ecosystems. Studying animals is rarely easy, yet these students, from undergraduates to PhD students, persist through the poor weather, failed experiments and lost data to help conserve lots of different species all over the UK.
This section is therefore dedicated to showcasing all of the great student research that is taking place across the UK. We have a Student Spotlight feature where students can share their research, we run the University Mammal Challenge each year, and we advertise student opportunities to get involved in mammal projects.
Here’s some ideas of how you, as a student, can get involved with the Mammal Society and mammal research. Click the image to be taken to a PDF with clickable links:
