Big Bat Map

Big Bat Map 

Welcome to the Big Bat Map, the map that lets you view and share sightings of bats flying in your area.

Enter the map above to see where bats have been spotted across the country and to add your own sightings. Let us know when you see any bats and help us build a bigger bat map!

To help you with your bat-spotting, our What Bat Is That? leaflet is full of tips on where, when and how to spot some of our more common species.

There's also heaps more about bats on this website. You can find out where they like to live, what they eat, and how we can encourage them with bat-friendly gardening and bat boxes. There are also links to the batty events that are happening in your area as well as the Count Bat Project which aims to involve more and more people in bat conservation. You can join BCT online and through your membership help us to protect bats and their habitats for future generations to enjoy, as well as receive regular newsletters, a bat fact pack, discounts on training and more.
