About

Monmouthshire Bat Group is made up entirely of volunteers.

In summer we:

  • Monitor breeding roosts of Lesser Horseshoe bats (part of Natural Resources Wale’s Lesser Horseshoe Bat Monitoring Programme)
  • Undertake activity surveys of bats (using bat detectors at selected sites)
  • Do maintenance work to keep conditions at known roosts suitability for bats
  • Monitor batboxes
  • Attend events and run bat walks to promote awareness of bats and their conservation

In winter we:

  • Monitor hibernation roosts of the Lesser Horseshoe and other bats

All year round we:

  • Care for baby and adult bats which have been abandoned, found starving or injured.

Unfortunately, because of our voluntary commitments, we are unable to do commercial survey work.
