Irish Mammal Atlas 2011- 2015
Seen a Squirrel, Stoat or Hare, come across some ‘Road Kill’ or been told about a brief encounter? In an exciting new venture the National Biodiversity Data centre wants you to report all your encounters with Irish mammals dead or alive for the next 5 years. They aim to map the current and historic distribution of Ireland mammals and create a baseline for future comparison.

This is an exciting new initiative which presents species accounts and distribution maps of the wild mammals that occur in Ireland and its territorial waters. The initiative pulls together data from existing recording initiatives and datasets to provide an overview of the current and historic distribution of Irish mammals. One of the primary aims of the initiative is to encourage recording of the commoner Irish mammals, so that a comprehensive picture of their distribution is achieved by 2015. This will then provide a baseline against which future changes to distribution can be tracked.
