Bat Conservation Trust

Saving bats for what its worth

Every year, thousands of people phone us to help grounded or injured bats that they find. But our bat care work has no guaranteed source of income and is wholly dependent on peoples generosity.

Thank you so much for contacting the National Bat Helpline or consulting our website about the bat that you rescued. We rely on people like you and so do the bats!

We offer our bat care services on a donate what you can basis. We have no guaranteed source of funding for our bat care work, so we depend on public donations to let us keep helping people who rescue bats.

Please think about what our service was worth to you and to the bat you helped. The average donor gives between £10 and £15, but any amount you can spare, whether big or small, will make a real difference and help ensure that the next person in your position gets the help they need.

On behalf of the whole team and the bats, thank you once again.
