There are more than 80 bat groups in the UK. They are made up of many dedicated volunteers and are the mainstay of bat conservation across the country, undertaking vital front-line conservation work. The groups vary greatly in size, the way they operate and the activities they undertake - some groups are just a single individual, while others have hundreds of members. Whilst BCT has agreements in place with most bat groups, please remember that bat groups operate independently from BCT and are run by a small number of volunteers.
