Welcome to Leicestershire and Rutland

Bat Group Website

The Leicestershire and Rutland Bat Group is a voluntary organisation formed in 1984, dedicated to the conservation of bats in the two counties.  We are closely connected with Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust and affiliated to the Bat Conservation Trust.

The following list shows just a few of the things we do: 

  • Provide information about bats
  • Provide advice and assistance with bat issues
  • Survey roost sites
  • Record bat distribution
  • Give talks and organise bat walks
  • Provide basic training for members working towards their roost visitor’s license
  • Care for ‘grounded’ or injured bats
