SHE DID IT!!!
On 20 October our fantastic Mammal Society Chair, Professor Fiona Mathews, ran the Amsterdam Marathon - her first ever marathon!
Fiona says "Huge thanks to everyone who sponsored me. It is one of the toughest things I have ever done and the thought of all that support kept me shuffling through the last few miles :)."
We will keep this page open for a bit for any last minute donations. Below is a reminder of what your money will be used for.
Fiona ran the Amsterdam Marathon to raise much needed funds for the Mammal Society. All money raised will go towards helping to fund ongoing Mammal Society activities (including monitoring, advising, and providing training), all of which help with the conservation of Britain's mammals.
In last year's Review of the Population and Conservation Status of Britain's Mammals we highlighted those mammals which are particularly at risk of extinction, as well as mammals which we simply don't have enough information about. Unlike most organisations monitoring British Wildlife, the Mammal Society receives no central government funding for our core work. With your help we can continue our work and increase the chances of species such as the wildcat, water vole and hedgehog surviving into the next decade. The title of Fiona's fundraising campaign is #RunningForTheirFuture.
Thank you so much for your donation!
