The Bat Study and Conservation group of Japan was established at the end of 1992. We are  devoted to the research and conservation of bats in Japan. Anyone being interested in bats can join us.

icon-bat There are about 30 species of bats in Japan but as there are only a few bat biologists, their lives and destribution are hardly known. Nevertheless in most species populations are definitely declining. Particularly some forest dwelling bats have seen only several individuals. Therefore it is significant to get information from not only researchers but everyone who is interested in bats.
