In England

We have a rich mosaic of bat habitats in England, including woodlands, grassland, farm and waterways, and these help to support all 17 bat species resident in the UK.


Thanks to funders such as Natural England and the Heritage Lottery Fund, and the dedication of bat volunteers around the country, there are lots of exciting and innovative bat projects going-on across England.  Through these projects we:

  • participate in the biodiversity action planning process, by identify conservation actions for bats and bat habitats in England;
  • advise and educate members of the public about bats and, in several regions, organise domestic roost visits on behalf of Natural England;
  • provide support to local bat groups through the provision of advice and publications, and facilitation of training; and
  • strive to make bat conservation accessible to everyone.

To find out more about volunteering opportunities in England, check out BCT's National Bat Monitoring Programme pages, or find your local bat group.
