RSS Feeds

Our latest feeds:

You can also access RSS feeds directly from pages on the site - the RSS icon will appear in the footer of an article page when a feed is available.

What are News Feeds?

News feeds allow you to see when websites have added new content. You can get the latest headlines and video in one place, as soon as it's published, without having to visit the websites you have taken the feed from.

Feeds are generally known as RSS ('Really Simple Syndication') which are just web pages, designed to be read by computers rather than people.

How do I start using feeds?

You will need one of the following to read RSS feeds:

Modern web browser

Most modern browsers, including Firefox, Opera, Internet Explorer, Safari and Chrome automatically check for feeds when you visit a website, and display the orange RSS icon when they find one. Many of them allow you to add RSS feeds as a browser favourite or bookmark folder, automatically updating them with the latest content.

Web-based news reader

Web-based news readers check feeds and displays any new articles that have been added. They let you catch up with your RSS feed subscriptions from any computer, making this option useful if you want to access the feeds from multiple computers or devices.

Desktop news reader

Some email software allows you to read RSS feeds. In addition, there is dedicated news reader software available that you can download and install on your computer.

How do I get a news reader?

There is a range of different news readers available and new versions are appearing all the time.

Different news readers work on different operating systems, so you will need to choose one that will work with your computer.

If you click on the RSS button you can subscribe to the feed in various ways, including by dragging the URL of the feed into your news reader or by cutting and pasting the same URL into a new feed in your news reader. Most sites that offer feeds use a similar orange button, but some may just have a normal web link.

Using BCI News feeds on your site

If you run your own website, you can display the latest headlines from other websites on your own site using RSS.

We encourage the use of BCI feeds as part of a website, however, we do require that the proper format and attribution is used when BCI content appears. The attribution text should read "BCI", Bat Conservation International, or "batcon.org" as appropriate. You may not use any BCI logo or other BCI trademark without permisson.

BCI relies on the support of our amazing members around the world.

Our mission is to conserve the world’s bats and their ecosystems to ensure a healthy planet.
