In the UK, most wild mammals, including rabbits and iconic species like hedgehogs and mountain hares, are very poorly monitored. This makes it difficult to know which regions or habitats are most important, or to detect changes in their population sizes.
Mammal Mapper is a citizen science project aiming to record information on the location and number of animals spotted on walks or bicycle rides in the UK.
Using the Mammal Mapper iOS or Android apps, you can record sightings of any mammal, including "field signs", such as burrows and mole-hills, as well as live animals. The app includes detailed guides to help you identify animals by their appearance and is very easy to use.
