Featuring two of Canada’s leading bat experts Dr. Brock Fenton and Dr. Paul Faure
Join us for our sixth annual celebration of bats at Toronto Zoo. Your evening begins with an informative presentation by two of Canada’s leading bat experts, Dr. Brock Fenton and Dr. Paul Faure, as they shed some light on these mysterious and often misunderstood creatures. Then, experience the Zoo after dark for a short tour as we venture out to ‘listen to the night’ and identify wild bats using special “bat detectors”.
You’ll also have a chance to meet two big brown bats from Dr. Faure’s research colony for an up close look at this common Ontario species while discovering more about the work being done at the Zoo and across the province to monitor and help protect these important creatures!
Limited spaces available!
Note: Cost includes parking for this after hours special program. If visiting the Zoo during the day, general admission can be purchased at Guest Services or online here.
*Proceeds support Toronto Zoo and our bat conservation initiatives.
