Purpose of Bats on the Move

The aim of the bats on the move program are to identify bat species that migrate from one area to another on a seasonal bases and develop strategies to protect these species, that may cross international boundaries needed integrated methods and partners to protect the species.

Bats on the Move is an overarching program that aims to identify and conserve migratory bats species within Africa. Currently, a pioneer project investigating the cave-dwelling Natal Long-fingered bat is underway called ‘Miniopterus on the Move‘. Whilst this project currently focuses only on the Miniopteus natalensis species, we aim to expand to other species suspected of migration, utilising methodologies learnt and experience gained from the Miniopterus on the Move project.
