Mammal Atlas

Post by christinej » 10 Jan 2014, 10:03

The Mammal Society, is running the National Mammal Atlas Project, to collate as many mammal records as possible in order to paint a fuller picture of their presence in the British Isles. It is intended to publish a new National Mammal Atlas in 2016, the first in over 20 years. The Atlas is being produced in collaboration with the Biological Records Centre and will incorporate records from 2000 to 2015.
OHBR will be contributing records to this project and we would like to encourage everyone to record the mammals they see - from pygmy shrews to red deer, and rats to rabbits. The survey includes marine mammals and you can also include anything the cat brings in and road kills.
If you are unsure about identification we will do our best to help you.
Records should be sent to OHBR ( or you can use the on-line form on the OHBR website (

Many thanks

Christine Johnson
