Join us online to learn about the Hertfordshire Barbastelle Project, a research collaboration between Herts and Middlesex Bat Group and Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust. The project's aims were to learn more about the barbastelle bat which is one of the rarest bat species in the UK. Very little is known about this species, as – like most other bats – it is nocturnal and very secretive, with particular habitat requirements.
Learn how the team discovered new maternity roosts through tracking, monitoring, and the use of remote detectors. Find out how our knowledge of the distribution of the barbastelle bat in Hertfordshire has improved through this exciting project and the steps being taken now to protect its habitat.
Presenter: Matt Dodds, Biodiversity and Planning Manager, Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust
