Update from the Roost Partnership

Through the unique Roost Partnership scheme BCT aim to improve products to enhance the built environment for our bats for example bat boxes or access products. The scheme does not endorse particular products but rather promotes the important working relationship between BCT and the Partner bat box or access product manufacturer in a common goal of improving roosting opportunities for bats. The Partnership also acts as an information sharing hub used to gather feedback from industry professionals to constantly improve our understanding of bat roosting requirements.

We are therefore very excited to welcome our second Partner to the scheme, Just Lead who produce the Bat Access tile (pictured below) have been working with BCT in recent months to hone their design.

We look forward to working with them and they say: “Joining the Roost Partnership is an excellent opportunity for us here at Just Lead. Giving the bats access points at roof level creating a safe haven for them to reside means everything to us and gives us a piece of mind knowing we are doing something to help the bats. It amazes us each day to know that throughout the country we are protecting a great number of bats as they play such an important part in controlling the population of insects.”
