The Cornwall Bat Hospital

Welcome to the website of the Cornwall Bat Hospital.

It is with deep regret that it is no longer possible for us to continue out bat-rescue activities. However, we will endeavour to help anyone with an interest in these unique mammals.

For bat emergencies in the Cornwall area, please contact either Chris & Sue Harlow on 01872 278695 or Daniel Eva on 01872 276057.

For emergencies outside of Cornwall please call the Bat Conservation Trust Bat Helpline on 0845 1300 228.

If you have an injured bat please go to the care page for information on bat first aid.

Go to the helpers page where you can see some video clips of bat helpers working with the bats.

If you're interested in bats in culture, have a look at the museum pages where you can see photographs of all sorts of objects that have been decorated with images of bats. Some of the bats are hard to see; can you find them?
