UPDATE: We have received sufficient interest for this project so have closed the tendering process. 17/01/19

The Bat Conservation Trust is inviting tenders for a new database and online recording pages for two new surveys: the National Bats in Churches Study and the Church Bat Detectives, being undertaken as part of the Heritage Lottery Funded Bat in Churches Partnership Project.

The Bats in Churches Partnership Project is a ground-breaking project to help churches that host large bat roosts. The project is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and over the next five years will bring together wildlife, heritage conservation and church organisations to save bats and protect churches so that future generations can enjoy and benefit from both. The partnership comprises the Bat Conservation Trust, Natural England, Church of England (Cathedral and Church Buildings Division), Churches Conservation Trust and Historic England.
