We are pleased to announce the release of the Bat Crime Report 2017. This report outlines and analyses incidents and outcomes of the Bat Conservation Trust’s (BCT) Investigations Project in 2017. This latest report shows a 8% increase from the previous year in the number of referrals made to the police. This increase is a cause for continued concern about levels of bat crime. The full report can be downloaded HERE.
The Investigations Project has been working to prevent bat crime since its inception in 2001. In 2016 funding obtained from the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation secured the future of the bat crime investigations project until 2019. MORE
