The National Bat Care Conference is held approximately every two to three years and is a great opportunity to meet fellow bat carers around the UK and beyond, as well as to increase and share your knowledge with our fascinating talks and workshops!
The most recent conference was held in February 2020 and featured a number of interesting discussions, including an early peek at the results of our Bat Finder Survey, which has shown just how much difference carers' work makes to public attitudes.
