The National Bat Conference is the biggest event in the bat calendar - a weekend of exciting talks, workshops and a conference dinner with entertainment on the Saturday evening. The conference is an opportunity to learn about the new discoveries in the world of bat conservation, catch up with old friends and meet new ones. This year we are delighted to have Dr Rodrigo Medellin, the Bat Man of Mexico, giving our keynote as well as an exciting range of talks, workshops and networking opportunities. We are currently being optimistic and assuming that we will be able to gather in September, but we are also developing contingency plans in case we can not go forward in our usual manner.

The Midlands Bat Conference is an opportunity for volunteer and professional bat workers in the Midlands to spend time together: updating their knowledge, sharing best practice, developing their skills and catching up on the latest 'bat chat'. The day will include spotlight talks from various bat groups in the region, longer talks on projects or sharing new knowledge and a choice of practical workshops. There will also be plenty of time for catching up with batty friends or making some new batty acquaintances.
