Advocacy and Consultations

BCT responds to consultations and provides information on issues that have implications for bat conservation.

A BCT Bat Walk in the Palace of Westminster with Biodiversity Minister Joan Ruddock (Steve Moon)We monitor many of the issues on the political agenda via our membership of Wildlife and Countryside Link and we often contribute to joint responses on issues via this forum.

We engage in advocacy with high level policy makers with regards to issues considered to have a particular threat to the conservation of bats.

Working in partnership

We work in partnership with many government, other non-governmental organisations and bat specialists commenting on issues, producing important papers and best practice guidance.  Many consultations come directly to BCT for response, whilst others come via Wildlife and Countryside Link, other BCT contacts and members. A wide range of issues are covered including: changes in legislation & licencing, good practice guidance, planning issues and work associated with the UK and countries Biodiversity Action Planning System.

Our work is funded by Natural England and The Esmee Fairbairn Foundation.
