National Bat Conference

The 2015 National Bat Conference will be taking place at the University of Warwick 11-13 September. 

Following a thorough search of alternate venues we have decided to hold the conference at Warwick again in 2015. This is due to a number of reasons - location, feedback from 2013 and 2014, and cost.
