The Avon Bat Group are volunteers promoting the conservation of bats and their habitat in the Avon area of the United Kingdom. We operate in the former county of Avon which was split up into the existing unitary authorities of Bath and North East Somerset, North Somerset, South Gloucestershire and the city of Bristol. From our constitution we aim to:
assist with the conservation of bats and their roosts
improve public attitudes and education among all age groups
give advice and information on matters concerning bats
provide care for, and advice on, sick and injured bats
give talks and lectures to interested groups
carry out surveys and keep records
Membership of the Avon Bat Group is open to anyone interested in bats.
We have a discussion forum on Yahoo Groups at http://uk.groups.yahoo.com/group/avonbatgroup/ . Please join in to swap views, photographs and even bat detector recordings.
