Bat Conservation- Big Bat Map

The Big Bat Map has been created by the Bat Conservation Trust to help you explore the world of bats all around us. Bats are amazing unique wildlife on your doorstep and we want to keep them that way. But sadly bats face many threats, they are losing their homes in buildings and trees, and losing their feeding ground in woods, fields and parks but to protect bats we need your help. By looking out for bats you are helping us find new bat hotspots, on the big bat map you can find out about local hotspots, events and bat conservation groups and about how you can help count bats for our National Bat Monitoring Programme.
