Communities across the South Hams, East and Mid Devon, Teignbridge, Exeter, Plymouth, and Torbay are being invited to help collect information on the impact climate change is having on nine threatened nocturnal mammal species – seven bat species, hazel dormice, and hedgehogs – as well as the habitats they depend on.

Made possible with funding from National Lottery Heritage Fund, Connecting people and landscapes in a changing climate’ will bring together regenerative farming and conservation to build a community around nature-friendly food production. By connecting local people and farmers the project aims to build understanding of how regenerative farming supports biodiversity, help people gain knowledge and skills needed to monitor wildlife, and grow more resilient landscapes and communities.

Look out for opportunities to get involved:

  • The Bat Conservation Trust will be at local events in Teignbridge and the South Hams as part of ‘Green Week’ in early June.
  • Take part in the Trust’s Farm Bioblitz on Sunday 14 July, near Exeter
  • Join activities and workshops on project farms that will help you gain wildlife surveying skills
