If you are interested in bats and would like to learn how you can help the Bat Conservation Trust to preserve, this workshop is for you.
The Bat Conservation Trust relies on a UK-wide network of volunteers to collect data on bat populations every year. This data helps to understand which bats are in need of help and where, as well as letting us know if they are doing ok.
This introductory bat detector workshop involves an evening classroom session followed by a practical field session starting around dusk. It is designed to provide attendees with an introduction to using a tuneable heterodyne bat detector and fundamental species identification skills, and enable them to participate in a UK-wide survey as part of the National Bat Monitoring Programme (NBMP). The focus is on the NBMP Waterway Survey, how to separate big bats and small bats, and on identification of pipistrelles and Daubenton's bat.
All proceeds from ticket sales go to the Bat Conservation Trust.
