The survey aims to improve our understanding of the distribution and activity of the different species of bat found in Guernsey, Herm, Alderney and Sark whilst providing an opportunity for anyone across the islands to take part in this project.
Why care about Bats?
Sadly, bat species around the world are vulnerable or endangered due to factors ranging from loss of habitat, diminished food supply, destruction of roosts, disease or killing of bats.
However … there are lots of things we can do to help!
