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! Studying animals and ecosystems is rarely easy, yet these student researchers persist through the poor weather, failed experiments and lost data to help conserve lots of different species all over the UK and further afield.
This section is, therefore, dedicated to showcasing all of this great student research! 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.
If you’re an undergraduate or masters student looking for an idea for your research project, have a look at our Student Project Ideas.
In order for us to keep track, if you have selected one of our projects, please enter your contact details and the project you have selected using the Project Form.
To feature as a Student Spotlight, or to ask any questions relating to how students can get involved with the Mammal Society, please contact the Student Rep, Beth, on firstname.lastname@example.org or @MammSocStudents on Twitter.
