Date: 9th September
Bats are one of the most popular and easily recognisable small mammals in Britain. Here at Knowsley, our vast land space and dense woodland areas offer these amazing creatures a fantastic natural habitat. Despite being so commonly included in pop culture, many people don’t realise the importance of UK bats, which are considered an ‘indicator species’. This means, when their population drop, it’s a sure sign that there is something harmful going on in the environment that is affecting biodiversity, and may ultimately have a negative outcome for people too!
This is why we’re inviting you to join us to explore our woodland area and help us monitor our local bat colonies in the wild.
– No unaccompanied under 18s
– £5 ticket price includes refreshments
What You’ll Be Doing
Arriving at 7pm, you’ll be invited to the Safari School for a short talk on bat conservation in the UK and why events like these are so important. You’ll then move up to the woodland for a guided walk to investigate the wild bat colonies that call Knowsley Safari home.
What To Wear
Much of this event will be held outdoors, we recommend wearing sensible, flat shoes and bringing a jacket in case the weather should turn during the evening.
