Help us to help bats!

We are a very small charity and recruit a small team of dedicated staff. Being small the role of volunteers and donations is crucial to our work, we simply could not do what we do without them.

You can help us in a number of ways from donating to our programmes, joining the team and volunteering in Malawi, conducting your research project with us, volunteering your time from home where ever you are to promote our work, conducting media promotion, or simply conducting fundraising events for us.

Why volunteer?

Work on a project led by an internationally renowed team of bat scientists.

ABC is led and founded by Dr Emma Stone, an expert bat scientist from the University of the West of England, UK. Emma co-leads the Bat Conservation and Research Lab at UWE, and completed her her PhD and post doctoral research on bats at the University of Bristol Bat Lab.


Emma has published in high impact journals on the effectiveness of bat licensing in England, mitigation of human bat conflict using radar and lighting, impacts of roost exclusions on bats, and impacts of lighting on bats (see publications page). Emma has Class 4 Bat License and can act as a sponsor for UK bat license applications.
