Irish Mammals Online Survey

The Mammals in Ireland online survey has been setup through the UCD School of Biology and Environmental Science as part of a study on biodiversity in Ireland.

This study will incorporate information on sightings of both native and introduced animals in Ireland provided by members of the public. Information submitted can be viewed on the distribution maps that will be created and updated at 2-weekly intervals. These maps will display the distribution of individual species in each county or in the country as a whole and can be accessed through the website.
