Please note that under the current Covid-19 restrictions, bat carers are still able to offer telephone advice, and if required, collect a bat (contained in a box) from you whilst observing social distancing requirements.
The group aims to:
Advance the protection and conservation of bats, their roosts, feeding areas and hibernacula in Kent;
Educate the public in all matters related to bats, including the production of relevant literature.
The Kent Bat Group (KBG) was formed in 1983 to conserve bats across the county, following a significant decline in bat populations across the UK.
