BCT’s “Bearing Witness for Wildlife” work is funded by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation. We will provide advice and assistance aimed at ensuring that allegations of wildlife crime involving species of conservation concern are effectively addressed, through preventative action or, where there is need, investigation and prosecution.

 Our investigation project has been running for over 15 years focusing on investigations into bat crime but has now expanded to include:

  • Bat Crime Investigations Project;
  • Conservation Wildlife Crime; (for species such as Great Crested Newt, Water voles and protected plants.)
  • Bat Roost Mitigation.
