We will achieve this by supporting and conducting applied research that informs targeted conservation action, strengthening local capacity and promoting a positive attitude towards bats through public engagement.

Did you know?
There are over 1,420+ bat species globally? Accounting for ~20% of mammals worldwide. Africa has an incredible diversity of 300+ species, and across southern Africa we have 120+ species!
Sadly, Africa is considered a bat conservation-void and bats are largely unprotected outside of protected areas. Habitat loss, land degradation and persecution are major threats to bat populations. We urgently need your help, like many other NGOs we are struggling to raise much needed funding, if you are in a position to make a donation or help us with fundraising we would really appreciate the support.
