Thank you for visiting the Oxfordshire Mammal Group Website. We hope you find the resources useful and hope to see you at an upcoming event.
This growing group is run by individuals (all volunteers) who live in Oxfordshire and have an interest in mammals (see our profiles on the Meet the Committee page). We have varied backgrounds and professions but we each are committed to conservation, education and getting people enthused about wildlife.
If you aren't already a Member we would love you to get involved too.
WHAT WE DO
We have a varied programme of indoor and outdoor events, from talks and displays to field surveys and staking out badger setts. If you have an interest in mammals, there's certain to be something for you here!
WHERE WE ARE
We cover the whole of Oxfordshire - if you have seen any interesting mammals locally, we'd love to know! We're particularly interested in reports of Dormice and Hedgehogs (both are now threatened species).
WHY WE DO IT
For interest ... to learn something new ... or just for fun. You'll never forget the first time you saw a badger emerge from its sett on a still summer evening ... or found a Harvest mouse nest. Try it and see.
If you have any question, comments or would like to get involved please fill in the relevant form on the Contact Us page.
