Abstract The distribution of the wild mammals of Belgium has been intensively studied during the years '78-'81. It was the first time that such a work was undertaken in Belgium and could lead to a better understanding of the current status of the different species. Conservation measures were also proposed to the political authorities who thereafter edicted a legal protection of the most vulnerable species. Unfortunately, habitat protection is rather unachieved and the situation of the most endangered species is still getting worse.
