The Devon Greater Horseshoe Bat Project

 

Peter Hall, Budleigh Salterton 

Speaker: Ann Mitchell, Devon Wildlife Trust

 

A talk by Devon Wildlife Trust

The talk will give information on Greater Horseshoes and why their numbers have fallen dramatically to the point where Devon and some parts of South Wales are the only places in this country where they can now be found.  Describes the work of the project and what is being done to raise awareness of the species and to increase their numbers.  Bats are an important pollinator and indicators of a healthy environment. They are also an iconic species that also have perhaps a ghostly reputation!
