Mammal watch south east

Sunday, 11 May 2014 11:35

'The Mammal Society is celebrating the launch of their new Heritage Lottery Funded project Mammal Watch South East (MaWSE) at Wildwood in Kent on Saturday 17th May from 10am. The MaWSE project is engaging the public in a variety of ways in monitoring mammals in the South East counties of Kent, Hampshire, Surrey, Sussex and the Isle of Wight. The goal is to obtain lots more records of mammals in order to paint a more accurate picture of their distribution in a South East Mammal Atlas. The ways that people can get involved include borrowing camera traps, taking part in surveys, checking out the website resources and downloading the new free smartphone app 'Mammal Tracker' to identify and submit mammal records (out in May).

At the event talks will be held on otters, hedgehogs and harvest mice, as these are the project's 3 focal species, and numerous wildlife organisations will be holding stalls at this family friendly day! A limited number of invites are being sent out as tickets also get you free entry to the Wildwood Trust for the day, so come and join us to launch this important project!
