This year (2020) International Bat Night is 29-30th August!
We have put together an International Bat Night Pack that you can download for free here: https://www.bats.org.uk/support-bats/international-bat-night ! Inside you will find ideas on how to celebrate bats, help bat conservation, further resources and more!
We thought that celebrating bats for just one night or one weekend wasn't enough so we have organised a whole month of celebrations; BatFest is a series of events and activities exploring and celebrating bats and the launch will be a 1 hour live event online featuring Chris Packham and a host of bats and bat workers to celebrate how amazing bats are and why we are working so hard to protect them. Find out more about this series of events here: https://www.bats.org.uk/our-work/conferences-symposia/bat-fest .
BatFest will include events like Bats and the Arts – an afternoon using the arts as a lens to explore the world of bats and featuring a talk by Paul Colley – British Wildlife Photographer of the Year for “Contrails at Dawn” , the Consultant’s Forum, the National Bat Conference and more! Keep an eye on social media as we announce more details in the days and weeks running up to BatFest!
