Many organisations and companies in the construction industry now work with the Bat Conservation Trust. Whether or not you currently work with BCT please do contact us if you have examples of good practice when working with bats that you wish to share. We would be delighted to consider these for inclusion in a news section of our website or for our award winning Bat News magazine.


Places bats may use in buildings

Perhaps you would like to offer to speak or run a workshop at our National Bat Conference. Attendance is in the region of 350 delegates and in the past two years the lighting industry, architects, roofing contractors and bridge engineers have all been represented.

There has never been a more important time for the construction industry and conservation bodies to work together to fulfil the true meaning of sustainable building.

What we can achieve together now can make a difference for generations to come. Let’s make sure that we support a world where bats (and other wildlife) and people live in harmony.
