SAVING AFRICAN BATS

Bats in Africa are in decline due to persecution, habitat loss and roost destruction. From our pioneering Conservation Research Centre in Malawi, African Bat Conservation are working and to save bats through our helpline and mitigation service, conservation education and applied research. 

Little is known about bats in Africa and our research fills the knowledge gaps about the roosting and foraging ecology of bats to help mitigate conflict and conserve habitats and roosts. We managed to get nine species legally protected under the new Wildlife Act of Malawi (2018) there are over 64 estimated species in the country which remain unprotected and regularly persecuted. Hundreds of bats are killed daily in Malawi through gassing and destruction of roosts. 

Help us to help bats. 

RESEARCH

CONSERVATION

EDUCATION & OUTREACH

"The lack of understanding of bats in Africa limits our ability to conserve them and prevents coexistence.

Research is critical to understand and demonstrate the role of bats in the ecosystem for the survival of both bats and humans."
