"The National Bat Helpline provides an emergency service for bats and people who encounter them. The helpline staff and volunteers engage with approximately 15,000 people every year, they are able to advise and educate in a way that would be difficult by any other means. Its critically important that this service is maintained and improved in order to make sure we dont lose the huge gains made in bat conservation over the last decade." - Chris Packham, Bat Conservation Trust President.

The National Bat Helpline receives nearly 15,000 enquiries each year from members of the public who have found injured and grounded bats, teachers/youth leaders wanting more information about bats, local bat groups, householders with bat roost questions and building/planning professionals. As a result, thousands of bats and their roosts are saved every year.

The Helpline relies on the hard work and dedication of hundreds of volunteers. This includes bat carers who rehabilitate injured bats, Natural England bat roost visitors who help homeowners with bat roosts and volunteers that answer phones on the Out of Hours Helpline in the summer.

Please donate. Your donation, no matter how big or small, will contribute to supporting the National Bat Helpline and save bats and their roosts.
