Thank you for visiting the Kent Bat Group profile page on MyDonate.

The Kent Bat Group has been working to help protect Kent's bats since 1983. We promote research, survey Kent bat populations, care for injured and grounded bats and offer advice and educate people in Kent about bats.

Please donate to support the Kent Bat Group.
Bats are declining, due mainly to the loss of roosts and feeding areas, and the effects of the increased use of pesticides. Kent is probably under greater pressure for change to the environment than anywhere else in Britain.

Fourteen of Britain's 18 resident bat species have been recorded in Kent. Bat species in Kent include Alcathoe's bat which has only been recognised as a species in the UK since 2010 and Bechstein's bat, one of the UK's rarest bats. In addition a vagrant, the greater mouse-eared bat was found in 1985.

The Kent Bat Group is proactive in promoting awareness of bats, to the general public and to specialist groups likely to come across bats in their work.

We work closely with the UK Bat Conservation Trust.
