A massive blow to mammal conservation in the UK

Wednesday, 06 February 2013 13:24

Everyone at The Mammal Society is very sad to relay the news that Derek Yalden passed away last night.

Derek was President of The Mammal Society since 1997, having been a member since 1961, and an Honorary Reader in Zoology at the University of Manchester. Many will have known and worked with Derek over the years, including in the production of the 4th edition of our Mammals of the British Isles Handbook, among with many other things.

We will inform people of the funeral arrangements when we have more information and a full obituary will appear in the Spring 2013 issue of Mammal News.

We are respecting the privacy of the family in these difficult times, so if anyone would like to leave a message of condolence to be later passed on, please contact us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

From all at The Mammal Society.
