MammalNet-Ireland is a subproject under the umbrella of MammalNet, a project aimed at assessing the potential of voluntary citizen involvement for mammal monitoring across Europe. MammalNet-Ireland aims to involve the people of Ireland in what is likely to become the most widespread citizen-science project across Europe. MammalWeb-Ireland, specifically, has the goal to connect the different mammal stakeholders across the whole island of Ireland, helping us to catalogue Irish mammalian biodiversity, and to understand what species are around us, where they occur, and what aspects of the environment impact on their occurrence and activity. MammalWeb-Ireland is a citizen-science effort in collaboration with Smartdeer, the first nationally-coordinated initiative for deer in Ireland, which aims to collect and analyse empirical data on deer from across the country. MammalWeb-Ireland has the same philosophy as Smartdeer: a project for people, with people, and by people, to better understand our wildlife.

 

Currently, the platform only hosts a small number of European languages. However, we are looking into having the site translated into Gaelic.

Ecclesall Woods are the largest ancient woodland in South-Yorkshire and are located in Sheffield’s south western corner, near the Peak District National Park border.
