Bat Conservation Trust
The Bat Conservation Trust is the leading non-governmental organisation in the United Kingdom solely devoted to the conservation of bats and the landscapes on which they rely. The website has general information about British bats, how to get involved in the National Bat Monitoring Program (NBMP), bat detectors, training courses etc. Also links to other local bat groups.
Cumbria Biodiversity Data Centre
Cumbria Biodiversity Data Centre (CBDC) is a one-stop shop for Cumbria’s biological records, biodiversity and geological information. CBDC collates and analyses Cumbria’s biodiversity data and the information produced supports the work of wildlife enthusiasts, consultants, planners, researchers and members of the public who are interested in Cumbria’s biodiversity.
Cumbria Wildlife Trust
Cumbria Wildlife Trust is the county’s leading conservation charity run by local people for the benefit of local wildlife and is part of a national network of 47 local trusts working to protect wildlife.
Natural England is the government’s adviser for the natural environment in England, helping to protect England’s nature and landscapes for people to enjoy and for the services they provide.
“Northern Bats” is an on-line resource for publishing the results of bat work in the north of England. Northern Bats covers bats and bat work in the geographical area covered by the Bat Conservation Trust’s list of North East and North West England bat groups, ie from the Scottish borders, south to include Cheshire and South Yorkshire. It has been inspired by the “Scottish BATS” publication and is similar in its aims and scope though the two projects are completely independent.
