At North Devon Bat Care we have dedicated space inside and outside specifically for the care and rehabilitation of bats.

Our picture gallery will hopefully give you a better idea why bat care and rescue is so important. Learn about what happend to each bat and the care given 

If you find a bat during the day time (inside or outside) then it is possible that something is wrong with it and it really needs you to act quickly and get help.

North Devon Bat Care was started due to there being a shortage of bat carers in this region and a wish to try to ensure that injured or grounded bats did not get overlooked due to care being hard to fine.  The UK bat's are threatened by various issues and it is important we all help to try to correct this.
