This project is enabling people to learn about, celebrate and help to care for these enigmatic bats and the landscape they live in.
The Devon Greater Horseshoe Bat Project works with local communities to secure a future for greater horseshoe bats in Devon, their northern European stronghold.
It is a partnership project of 19 organisations led by Devon Wildlife Trust and is supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund, as well as other funders.
Visit the Project website for lots of information on the work being carried out and how you can get involved: devonbatproject.org

Greater horseshoe bats use a "mental map" to find their way around the landscape. They remember the location of obstacles, feeding grounds and other landmarks to help them navigate in the dark.
It's your job to reconstruct the lanscape in the grid to match Betty's mental map. Click here to play the game.
