Devon Wildlife Trust gets funding to discover more about elusive bats

NEW funding has been given to Devon Wildlife Trust for a project to help discover more about bats in the Devon landscape.

The project is being run by DWT and Devon Biodiversity Records Centre with support from the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’s Sustainable Development Fund.

The £4,425 grant will help towards mapping and survey work and the project will run until February 2012.

As part of the project, DWT is also looking for willing volunteers to help with the survey work.

They will be invaluable in ‘ground truthing’ the project maps, once complete, to make sure the aerial photographs are still accurate.

To volunteer, contact Dawn Lenn on (01392) 279244.
