is – at heart – a library of trip reports, organized by country, and sometimes sub-nationally (the US and Australian States, and Canadian Provinces and Territories have separate pages for example). You can navigate to country pages here. So if you are interested in traveling to, say, Madagascar, you can visit the country page and read others’ reports.

You can contribute to the community by submitting your own report, and ask for advice on the Community Forum.

This site has lots of additional resources, including reviews of books, apps and equipment, a world mammal checklist and a library of mammal calls. We take conservation seriously, and have information on the ways mammalwatching can help protect the mammals we love. We have guidelines on responsible mammalwatching.
