The second edition of “M’ammalia. A week dedicated to mammals” is ready to be launched, promoted by the Italian Mammal Society and the Associazione Nazionale Musei Scientifici, Orti Botanici, Giardini Zoologici e Acquari (A.N.M.S.).

The event, that will take place during the first week of November, will be characterised by seminars, short films, exhibitions and guided tours all focused on actively promoting peculiar aspects of mammal biology, conservation issues, the role of museums in awareness campaigns and research, monitoring techniques and mammal management, and interactions between mammals and human activity.

To better support a wider and more fruitful cooperation with both individuals and more structured third parties, and with the intent of highlighting the quirks and local specificities that distinguish each collection, museum or natural area,

M’ammalia will be promoted directly by those that have decided to adhere to the event, who will be able to receive support directly from the ATIt and ANMS.

The ATIt and ANMS will provide support aimed at helping the organisation and also finding potential speakers that can promote and manage the single events but that lack their own mammalogy research group.

Interested participants must comunicate the nature and title of their event with a short descriptive text before the 10th of October 2010 to the ATIt secretary Elisa Masseroni. All participants will receive an introductory powerpoint presentation of “M’ammalia. A week dedicated to Mammals”
