Welcome to the Guild of Taxidermists


The Guild of Taxidermists is the only officially recognised organisation actively working with the legislative authorities to secure the future for legitimate taxidermy in the UK.


Since its formation in 1976 the Guild has raised the profile and standard within UK taxidermy .  We are now a respected body, regularly consulted and asked to contribute over a range of issues from legislation to media interest. If you are a practicing taxidermist or collector, whether you are or have been a member you will undoubtedly have benefited from the Guilds activities.
