It’s International Bat Night this weekend (27/28 August) so don your best super hero costumes and get outside and do some bat spotting. Here are why bats are important (including my own favourite reason for loving them!) and how you can help them…
Bats use our gardens as an important source of food, water and shelter. As their natural habitats become more scarce, our gardens are playing a more important role in securing a future for bats.
Bats are a sign of a green and healthy environment, so creating a garden that’s good for bats will also be good for people. Plus, and this is my FAVOURITE reasons for loving bats, bats like to eat midgies! So the more bats you attract the less midgies there will be to bite us!
