We’re really excited to announce our new webinar series looking at Britain’s mammals. The webinars will be held monthly and will welcome industry experts to talk about a wide range of mammals and all things mammal related.
This Month’s Webinar!
A snappy introduction to the study of mammal skulls and bones!
Our third webinar will be delivered by Ric Morris and is an ideal introduction event for any naturalist who is casually curious about a mystery skull found on a country walk. This may be all you ever need to know… but once bitten by the bones bug and engaged by Ric’s osteological enthusiasm, we hope that you will soon find yourself wanting to delve much deeper into the secret skills of British mammal skeleton identification! This webinar will be held on the 24th of November at 19:30 GMT, get your tickets here.
Harvest Mice – the needle in the haystack!
Derek Crawley will be hosting our second webinar on Wednesday the 27th of October with a talk about harvest mice. He will cover their ecology, life history, distribution in the UK and surveying techniques for Britain’s smallest rodent! The talk will finish with a question and answer session by those attending the webinar, so get your best harvest mouse question prepared! Tickets are £5 and are on sale now, click here to purchase yours today. This webinar will be hosted in our National Mammal Week to celebrate the theme this year of ‘Harvest Mice and Other Wildlife Under the Radar’.
The pine marten has returned and it’s here to stay!
Our webinar series kicked off on the 22nd of September for the Return of the Pine Marten, hosted by Dr Johnny Birks. The talk covered the UK’s historical and current pine marten situation and included research on the natural recovery in Scotland and translocations and reintroductions to England and Wales. Issues surrounding conflict and this species were also raised, such as proposals to remove or cull pine martens on Speyside to ‘save the capercaillie’. The webinar was a great success and many interesting questions were posed to Johnny at the end of his talk. We would like to thank everyone for coming and helping to raise funds for our vital conservation work.
