Frequently Asked Questions
Please see below some frequently asked questions we receive. If you don't find the answer to your question below or on other pages of this website, feel free to ask us questions at events, contact us via the appropriate form on the Contact Us page, or post it on Facebook or Twitter (see links above).
Q: How do I get involved with the OxMG?
A: Check out our Events page to see what's coming up. If you just want to attend an event there's no pressure to get involved further. However, if you want, you can talk to a member of our committee when you're at an event to see if you can volunteer with us. You can also register to become a member, come to the AGM or share with us on Facebook and Twitter.
Q: I want a career in wildlife / want to get involved with wildlife in general, what can I do?
A: You can join a local wildlife group (such as ourselves or those listed on the Useful Links page). There you will meet like-minded people, can share your knowledge and learn from others too.
Q: I have found an injured animal, what can I do?
A: You can let nature take its course or intervene, see guidance on this page.
Q: I saw an animal and don't know what it is, any thoughts?
A: We're always interested in what you've seen. If you have a photo send it to us on Facebook or Twitter (see links above) or describe what you've seen and where you were. We'll do what we can to help!
Q: I have an idea for something OxMG could do. Can I let you know?
A: Of course you can! Let us know via the appropriate form on the Contact Us page, post it on Facebook or Twitter or talk to us in person at an event or at the AGM. We look forward to hearing from you!
Q: Can I book a seat at an Oxford Winter Talk?
A: We're afraid it is not possible to book. Entry is on a first come, first seated basis. That said, we can sit 300 people and have never reached capacity so you're likely to be seated.
Q: I need some advice with a planning application, who should I ask for help?
A: The CIEEM Professional Directory is a good place to find an ecological consultancy near you.
