Science and conservation for the world’s 2800 small mammal species

Get Involved

The IUCN SSC Small Mammal Specialist Group is an expanding global network of scientists and conservationists who volunteer their time to help advance the world’s scientific understanding of the small mammals, and to promote effective conservation action to secure their future.  But with over 2800 species of rodents, shrews, moles, solenodons, hedgehogs and tree-shrew to consider, the SMSG clearly has a lot of work to do.

If you are a professional small mammal ecologist, taxonomist or conservationist and want to be part of the SMSG community and contribute to this global endeavour, then please get in touch through the Contact Us page.
