Description

Tim talks with South Lancashire Bat Group's Clare Sefton & Steve Parker...

The conversation covers what got them into bat conservation and how bats can completely change your life. How that first encounter with a bat can have you hooked, literally in minutes.

The main topic though is the bat care network. Did you know that there is a network of volunteer bat workers across the country who care for injured bats? It's a fascinating world full of dedicated conservationists finding themselves in some often down right weird situations.

Ever found a meal worm at the bottom of a packet of cornflakes? Ever blown on a bat's nipple? All that and more in the final episode of Ecology - Tales from the Field series 1!
