An Introduction to Urban Mammals
Sat 29 April 2017, 10:00 – 15:00 BST
This one day event is a fascinating introduction to urban mammals, delivered by Debbie Alston using the specimens from the award winning Notice Nature Feel Joy exhibition. The course looks at the key mammal
species which can be observed in our urban environments, their identification by sight and typical signs. It will also include an overview of their ecology, their importance and current threats to their populations and how these can be minimised. It will conclude by giving an insight into how we observe and record UK urban mammals, including
traditional trapping methods, footprint tunnels and camera traps.
