The Assynt Bat Cave Project (2009-11)
February 23rd 2010
This project has been designed to ascertain if Assynt Caves are used by roosting bats and to help determine their initial importance for bats. The project proposes to use specialist survey data loggers which can be positioned near a cave entrance where they will detect and store any bat activity without needing human attention.
The project is being run by the North Highland Bat Network with funding by Scottish Natural Heritage.
This is what the project involves.
