Conservation: We work in partnership with Natural England to provide hands-on bat conservation. We are on call to help injured and stranded bats.

Research: We carry out research including roost and habitat surveys to build our knowledge of the ecology of the bats of West Yorkshire.

Education: We give talks at schools and provide bat walks and talks to educate the public and attend local shows to increase the public’s awareness to the plight of bats.

Records: We receive and hold records on bat roosts and sightings from around the county.

Training: We provide training to teach people how to use bat detectors, handle bats and identify bats in the hand to ultimately add to the number of licensed bat conservation workers operating in West Yorkshire.
