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.
