Welcome to the Mammal Research Institute

The Mammal Research Institute in the Faculty of Natural and Agricultural Sciences at the University of Pretoria is dedicated to research and teaching on the biology and ecology of African mammals, including the conservation of our indigenous mammal fauna in the context of sustainable human development.

The MRI has distinguished itself as the “go to” African mammal institution for consultancy, training and research output. As such it is globally the premier institute conducting African mammal research. It is pan-African in its research and training, with activities extending across southern and central Africa to west Africa, Ethiopia and the Southern Ocean. International collaborations exist in all continents.

 

 

 

 

 

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the MRI in 2016, the journal Mammal Review launched a virtual issue, highlighting research focussed on African mammals.
