The first comprehensive review of British mammal populations for more than 20 years will be launched by The Mammal Society and Natural England. The report, co-funded by Natural England, Natural Resources Wales and Scottish Natural Heritage, finds that almost one in five of British mammal species face a high risk of extinction.
Come to the SMC to hear three of the authors of the report discuss which mammals are under the greatest threat, which are doing better, and what are the greatest pressures driving numbers down.
Speakers will include:
Prof Fiona Mathews, Professor of Environmental Biology at the University of Sussex and chair of the Mammal Society
Prof John Gurnell, Emeritus Professor of Ecology at Queen Mary University of London
Dr Colin Harrower, Ecological Data Analyst at NERC’s Centre for Ecology and Hydrology
