Town talks about how to protect the bats

PEOPLE in Bradford on Avon learned about protecting bats at a conservation talk held at St Margaret’s Hall.

Professor Fiona Mathews explained how the town is within an important area for bats that includes Bath, Box, Corsham and Winsley.

Although we are rarely aware of them, they live, feed, breed and hibernate in the countryside and darker areas of towns/villages around us, often benefitting from the many disused underground stone quarries.

The Mayor, cllr Simon McNeill-Ritchie said: “We all recognise that we face no greater threat than the climate emergency and as individuals, as groups of people and as a town we are committed to doing all we can to mitigate the present danger.

“Working together with other groups to produce this kind of event sets a precedent for how we can help educate ourselves and the community on critical issues, such as the negative impact of manmade climate change and other human activity on ecosystems.”
