BATS AND THE LAW

In Britain all bat species and their roosts are legally protected, by both domestic and international legislation.

This means you will be committing a criminal offence if you:

  • Deliberately capture, injure or kill a bat
  • Intentionally or recklessly disturb a bat in its roost or deliberately disturb a group of bats
  • Damage or destroy a bat roosting place (even if bats are not occupying the roost at the time)
  • Possess or advertise/sell/exchange a bat (dead or alive) or any part of a bat

Intentionally or recklessly obstruct access to a bat roost
