South Lancashire Bat Group is covered under a Public Liability Insurance policy, but no Personal Liability is covered. Anyone taking part in bat group events, including bat box
checks, bat walks and hibernation site checks, does so at their own risk. South Lancashire Bat Group recommends the wearing of gloves and an up to date rabies vaccination when handling bats, which should be carried out in accordance with the current guidance from the Bat Conservation Trust.

Throughout the winter, various Hibernation surveys will be arranged, however these are by invite only

Also training workshops are available to members. Due to previous issues over these events they are not directly advertised, as they are intended for group members to expand their knowledge and provide better understanding of bats and increase skills to benefit bat conservation through the bat group. The workshops are not for consultants.
