|Found A Bat?
If you find an injured bat or one on the ground or in an exposed place during the day then it is likely to need help. Phone the Bat Helpline 0845 1300 228 for advice. They will assess the situation and may send a trained Bat Carer to rescue the bat. Do not handle the bat unless absolutely necessary and then only whilst wearing thick gloves.
Basic information and advice is also available on the Bat Conservation Trust website www.bats.org.uk. The Helpline can also be contacted for general queries 9 to 5.30, Monday- Friday.
Bats are in serious trouble both in the UK and all over the world. Every individual we can rescue and rehabilitate is precious. Thank you.
