About the Count Bat Project

Boy with bat box at Count Bat event (Tony Fox, Brumbats)The future of sustainable bat conservation lies in engaging, educating and involving people in the wonder of bats. 

During 4 years (2008-2012), the Count Bat Project worked towards our vision of bats and people living in harmony and tried to involve as wide a spectrum of people as possible in bat conservation with members and volunteers reflecting modern Britain.

Over 20,000 people were involved in project events, 1500 bat sightings were added to the Big Bat Map and over 1,200 hours of volunteer time were generously donated.

This Heritage Lottery Fund project comes to an end in January 2012, however we have produced an end of project resource pack DVD called 'Bats for All' which we hope will help support you in holding events in future and keep the spirit of the Count Bat project alive.

Thank you!
