The Cumberland Bat Group is formed by volunteers to protect and enhance bats within the North of Cumbria.  We are one of two groups operating within the county.  We are affiliated with the Bat Conservation trust as a Network Partner.

 

The Cumberland Bat Group aims to:
  • protect and conserve bats, thier roosts, feeding areas and hibernation sites
  • raise awareness of bat conservation
  • provide information on bats to the public
  • monitor bat populations
  • create, enhance and maintain roosting sites
  • maintain a pool of licensed volunteer bat workers who are able to undertake roost visits and provide assistance
  •  

    These aims are achieved by:
  • undertaking bat habitat box erection, maintenance and monitoring
  • outreach programmes with local schools
  • assisting Natural England on roost visits
  • producing an annual newsletter
  • continual training of members by members
  •  

    Hopefully the pages on this site will answer any queries you may have.  If you require anything further please use the contacts page to get in touch.

    DID YOU KNOW: When food supplies decline in winter, bats hibernate in cool, draught-free moist sites. Different species may use the same hibernation site. Hibernation sites in Lincolnshire include railway tunnels and old cellars
