The Guild of Taxidermists
Who we are
The Guild of Taxidermists was formed in 1976 to raise the profile and promote the highest standards of taxidermy within the UK, dedicated to the art, science, and education of taxidermy.
We protect the rights of taxidermists, and actively work with government, related organisations, and associations to secure the future for legitimate taxidermy in the UK. The Guild aids the police and the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) in their action against the illegal taking of wildlife.
We encourage training including discussion and demonstrations in taxidermy techniques, the circulation of exhibitions of high standard and the provision of information relating to taxidermy for the public, to promote public interest in taxidermy within the British Isles.
