Help to put Mammals on the map
Herefordshire Mammal Group (Previously known as Herefordshire Action for Mammals - HAM) is dedicated to the conservation of mammals in Herefordshire. We aim to teach people about mammals and to encourage them to learn more about them by taking action themselves.
Our activities include recording the distribution and population size of mammals throughout Herefordshire, conservation work, workshops and training days, talks and visits, providing advice on species and habitat conservation and identifying threats to local habitats. We also provide opportunities for students to expand their practical experience in working with mammals.
OUR FIELD ACTIVITIES

Our Winter Season starts on 13 December 2016 at the Bunch of Carrots with a talk by Simon Poulton. who designed
and produced the BioEcoSS small mammal tube trap. There will be two parts to Simon's talk, starting with the the general principles of small mammal trapping which will be followed by his three-year research study into the altitudinal variation in small mammal communities and populations in Nepal where he caught 10 species and a total of 228 animals – and there will be plenty of stunning photos!
