The European Mammal Foundation has launched its new long term and large-scale project, European Mammals on Maps, and calls for Crowd Donations to help reach its goals.

The project is managed by a Steering Group of 11 professional scientists and conservation managers, coordinating the work of the National Coordinators in 42 countries. The National Coordinators oversee the work carried out at the national level, mainly mammal surveying. 

The objectives of the project are:

1. to determine the distribution of around 270 mammal species in Europe, covering an area of 11.442.500 km², and, using these data, publish the Atlas of European Mammals (2nd edition) in 2024. In the Atlas, for each species, there will be a beautiful color photograph, a distribution map and a short text with interesting information on the species, written by a specialist. 

2. at the same time, to stimulate an increase in scientific research on mammals in Europe.

Sponsoring is urgently needed to buy materials such as wildlife cameras and footprint tunnels to identify mammal presence, and to cover other costs.

This is especially true to support scientists in countries where hardly any governmental support is available, but which hold the highest species diversity of mammals, many of them endangered.


If you want to help to protect Europe’s mammals

The #WildBoarSymposium has been postponed until 2022, in line with its biannual schedule.We think that holding the symposium in person is a unique opportunity for cooperation and to build new networks.We hope to see you then! More info on our website ->

@ECOTROP_MNHN @DiegoLlusia @MammalWeb @eMammal @mammalnet_eu @Chiropotes @thereal_jayhay @RolandKays Projects do vary slightly in setup and how people can participate. @MammalWeb primarily focuses on UK monitoring but we have teamed up with @mammalnet_eu to host camera trap footage from this project on the MammalWeb platform

Methods, challenges & possibilities to monitor wild carnivore populations.
We have co-authored a guidebook created under @EFSA_EU to collect information on the distribution, abundance & structure of wild animals relevant for livestock & human health.
