The Mammal Society guidance documents
The Mammal Society has started to publish a new series of practitioner guidance documents to provide the evidence base for informed decision-making by ecological consultants, planners, competent authorities and developers.
The Water Vole Mitigation Handbook
This publication aims to promote best practice amongst ecological consultants in undertaking surveys, and in designing and implementing mitigation measures for water voles. It is also intended to guide and inform decision makers to ensure that the survey information provided, and mitigation measures proposed, are appropriate. A flowchart is provided in Appendix 7 to assist those reviewing planning applications. The guidance set out in this document should be considered to be ‘interim’ guidance. It will be revised as required to take account of relevant new evidence.

Dormouse boxes from Kent Mammal Group
These well-made and designed dormouse boxes are great value and are made exclusively from sustainably sourced British birch wood. The boxes come ready assembled, so can be used directly they are received. It is useful to “weather them” slightly to help them to blend into their surroundings, particularly if they are being placed within a habitat that pedestrians use frequently.
Each box costs £12 plus postage of £1.50 a box (mainland UK – please enquire about postage to locations outside the UK).
£1 from the sale of each box will be donated to the Mammal Society. To order please email firstname.lastname@example.org. To ensure that the Mammal Society benefits from your purchase please be sure to include the reference “Mammal Society” in the subject heading.
Mammal Society trap loans
The Mammal Society owns 240 Longworth traps, 50 BioEcoSS traps and 5 camera traps which are available to loan. Please contact our training officer Rose Toney on email@example.com for more information. Mammal Society membership and loan fees apply.
