Bats are a protected species in the UK under domestic and international law. By analysing non-invasive samples such as faeces we are able to identify these amazing species without disturbing or harming them.
The chXout bat species identification service can accurately and cost-effectively identify all 17 species of bat found in the UK from a single dropping, providing there is enough genetic material.
As bat species cannot be accurately determined from the shape and size of its droppings, our service presents itself as the perfect tool for ensuring accurate identification to support your ecological studies.
