Last chance to submit mammal records for 2015 atlas

The deadline for submission of data for inclusion in the forthcoming Wiltshire Mammal Atlas is rapidly approaching – 31st January 2016.

If you didn’t already know, Wiltshire Mammal Group (WMG), supported by WSBRC, launched the Wiltshire Mammal Atlas Project (WMAP) in 2013 to enable the update of the previous county atlas and to promote and improve mammal conservation across the county. Wiltshire Bat Group (WBG) joined this partnership in 2014.


More information about the project.

All data received by the deadline will also be shared with the National Mammal Atlas Project, run by the Mammal Society.
