In 2019, members of the Enetwild consortium, including the Department of Veterinary Medicine of the University of Sassari, launched a parallel project named MammalNet, also funded by EFSA. This project aims to promote the collection of data on the occurrence of wild mammals across Europe using citizen science. The project has implemented three applications: iMammalia, MammalWeb and Agouti, respectively for general users, camera trappers and scientists. More info at
