10:00 am - 4:00 pm, Front Courtyard by the carousel
Ontario’s bats are in peril. In the past five years, half of our bat species have been added to the endangered list. Come to our Bat Awareness Day event to learn about these remarkable animals and the work the Zoo is doing to help save them. We will dispel some of the myths that surround bats and teach you about their important role in the ecosystem.
- Learn about the eight species of bat in Ontario
- See and learn about the equipment we use to study bats
- See our model bat houses and learn about installing your own
- Crafts and colouring – make your own bat mask to wear around the Zoo!
We hope to see you there. Even if you are scared of bats – we might just change your mind!
