Come With Us to See Bats

Bats are easy to see in huge numbers as they head out to look for food at dusk.

Bats are the only mammals capable of true flight.

With extremely elongated fingers and a wing membrane, stretched between, the bat’s wing anatomically resembles the human hand.

Over 1,200 bat species can be found worldwide, and bats make up over a fifth of all mammal species on earth.
