Bat Surveys Wales conduct bat surveys all across wales , and as well as our bat survey services operating nationally we often work with partners in London and the home counties

There are 17 species of native bats in Britain all of which are legally protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 and the Habits Regulations 1994. Taken together these two pieces of legislation make it illegal to:

  • Capture or kill a bat
  • Disturb a bat whilst in a place of shelter or rest (roost)
  • Damage or destroy a bat’s breeding site or resting place (roost)

No offence is committed if work is done under and in accordance with an appropriate licence.
