What is this?
"Mammalwatching" is looking for and observing mammal species and the passion that brought us together. Mammalwatching can be done anywhere, one just has to go, ideally into nature, and look for mammals.
By knowing species ecology and distribution, we often search in particular places for specific species, assisted by equipement such as binoculars, torches, thermal equipment and camera traps.
For example to see wild cats, it is best to look for them at night, helped by torches and possibly a thermal imager, because most of the species are nocturnal and active at night.
Mammalwatching community meetings
We organised the first mammalwatching meeting in October 2022. We were a small group but just the right people to discuss how to be better as a mammalwatching community. On one of the two days an online group helped and we had a very productive discussion. Among other things, we discussed how we can observe mammals with a minimum negative impact and a maximum positive impact.
Since then, we have been organising regular online community meetings on various topics, but we always try to include conservation as well. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you are interested in participating.
Organise regular community meetings to discuss mammalwatching and conservation, among other things.
Encourage sustainable actions such as carbon carbon offset, reporting sightings, supporting local projects and guides. Revive the mammalwatching award with a focus on conservation.
