AIMS 2012

AIMS2012 follows on from the highly successful AIMS2009. AIMS2012 will further promote awareness of the conservation status of mammals on the island of Ireland and the importance of mammalian biodiversity and the need to protect their habitats on the island, especially in the light of increased proliferation of invasive species.

AIMS 2012 will encourage growth in positive public attitudes to our mammalian wildlife heritage, continue to nurture long term links amongst state agencies and third level institutes, while allowing access for all those involved in mammal ecology and conservation in the wider community.
