Dorset Bat Group
Welcome to the Dorset Bat Group
We are volunteers with a shared passion - we all love bats! Our role is one of helping record and protect the bats of Dorset. We do this by carrying out surveys, roost visits, engaging with the public - anything that will help raise awareness of the bats around us and the need for their protection. We are a membership organisation are always looking for like-minded people to help us care for bats in Dorset.
