Bats for All resource pack

Over 4 years, from 2008 to 2012, the Bat Conservation Trust's Count Bat Project worked with a wide range of audiences, organisations and volunteer groups across England to give everyone, everywhere the chance to discover the world of bats and get involved in their conservation. The pack includes resources for engaging young people, tips on running bat walks, guidance on accessibility to people with special needs and more.
