The Societas Europaea Mammalogica was set up to support the first edition of the Atlas by providing a formal organisation and a bank account. This was registered in Paris under French law. Since that time, the SEM has ceased to exist officially, so for the second edition of the Atlas, we have set up a new organisation to provide similar facilities. The European Mammal Foundation is registered as a charitable Foundation (Stichting) in the Netherlands and has the objective of publishing and keeping up to date an atlas and related products with all information about European mammals. It can thus be used to help with fund-raising for the Atlas project. At present, the Foundation has 4 officers:

  • Chair: Tony Mitchell-Jones
  • Vice-chair: Johan Thissen
  • Secretary: Laurent Schley
  • Treasurer: Svetlana Miteva
