Our bats need your help! There are lots of ways that you can get involved with BrumBats, whatever your age, level of experience, or physical ability. You don’t need to know about bats to start volunteering, and we’ll give you all the training and support you need, so why not try one of these:
There is currently a waiting list to train to do bat care with BrumBats. If you’re interested in being added to the list, please email Morgan
Stalls, Events and Bat Walks
You don’t need any special knowledge to help with stalls, walks and events – you just need to be friendly and to have buckets of enthusiasm! You can help out at bat walks without LEADING the walk! We always need people to help sorting out equipment and talking to people. You’ll pick up loads of new skills, learn about bats and meet loads of great people. For more info on this, please email Chris.
The Batlas project (we are surveying every 2km square in the area to make a Bat Atlas – Batlas!) is open to everyone to take part in. You don’t need any experience – we provide all the training you need and even loan you the equipment! Find out more at www.batlasproject.co.uk and www.facebook.com/batlasproject.
We do a bit of sciencey stuff here at BrumBats, and you can get involved with surveys, from Bat Box checks to winter endoscoping and summer woodland surveys. If you’re interested in finding out more, please email Morgan for details. *please note that to take part in some activities you will need to have a current rabies vaccination, and to have some experience at handling bats.
