All bat species and their roosts are protected under UK AND European Law and it is an offence to kill, injure, capture or disturb them or to damage, destroy or obstruct their roosts.
All 18 species of bat in the UK are protected. Bat populations are threatened by loss and fragmentation of natural hedgerow, woodland and pond habitats; loss of food due to pesticide use and intensive agriculture and loss of roosting space due to development.
