Bat Conservation Trust
To conserve bats we need to establish the size of current bat populations, working out which bats are where and how they are responding to the threats and pressures they face. BCT’s network of volunteers and the general public monitor bats for national and international programmes. By monitoring them we can discover the factors that are important for their survival. We can identfiy which species need action now, what areas are important for bats and what threats bats face. Ultimately our monitoring programmes give us, and governments, the information needed to make bat conservation a success.
