Are you a mammal photographer?

The Kent Mammal Atlas is a collaborative project between The Kent Bat Group (KBG), Kent and Medway Biological Records Centre (KMBRC), The East and West Kent Badger Groups and the Kent Mammal Group (KMG). A mammal atlas commitee has been setup with representation from many of the aforementioned groups that has oversight for the creation and publication of the atlas.

The Kent mammal atlas project is in need of your best digital mammal photographs of species that occur in Kent. We are hoping that you'll send in your best digital photographs to allow the mammal atlas committee to then select photos that are suitable for possible inclusion within the forthcoming mammal atlas.

Copyright of the images must be the property of the submitter and will remain so. The mammal atlas commitee will not be able to confirm receipt of images. The mammal atlas committee reserves the right to publish these images in the atlas as they deem suitable. All photographers of images published in the atlas will receive a credit.
