Bat Finders' Survey

BCT sends a survey to everyone who contacts us about a grounded or injured bat and gives us permission to follow up. The results really show what a huge difference care volunteers' work makes, not just to bats but to humans! The most recent results were released in December 2020; you can watch a short video about them below, or download a more detailed PDF summary.
