Zoology resources

Oooh a shiny new forum!!

So I think it would be nice to get a list of resources in a sticky for Zoology enthusiasts to refer to for information and research, so if you have any suggestions stick them up here and we can stickify them

Fantastic idea! The ones I swear by are

http://primatology.net/

An excellent Primatology resource run by primatologists.

http://www.nature.com/

The prestigious (you have to say that!) Nature magazine

http://www.janegoodall.org/

An excellent place to find out about volunteering and of course a great way to get tips on how to get started in field research.

Bird of Prey research, anyone?

I have a large collection of Birds of Prey.
If there are any students out there looking to do research on anything related, such as anatomical difference between the groups; such as eye colour or feather structure, variation of talon and foot design, just to name a few.


Let me know if I can help out.
Regards,
Tom.

Think some websites of Irish organisations are needed here!

http://www.miseproject.ie/
MISE stands for Mammals in a Sustainable Environment. I've done a lot of volunteer work with this group and they're a great organisation.

http://www.marinedimensions.ie/
Another organisation I volunteer with, and one that could benefit from some more publicity. Definitely worth looking into if you're interested in Ireland's marine life. If you have kids that are interested, there are great summer camps on every year. Based in Bray so worth looking into if you live anywhere near there.

http://www.goldeneagle.ie/index.php
I imagine most people are familiar with this website already. I've been fascinated by the progress of these birds of prey reintroductions for years so I like to check the news on this site regularly.

Take a look at the Jobs section for some pretty thrilling opportunities working for wildlife agencies and various collections in North America

If you're looking to ID a species, this list of all Irish species is very handy:
