Ontario’s bats are in peril. In the past five years, half of our bat species have been added to the endangered list. Come to our Bat Awareness Day event to learn about these remarkable animals and the work the Zoo is doing to help save them. We will dispel some of the myths that surround bats and teach you about their important role in the ecosystem.

Bats are amazing animals, and are entirely undeserving of their scary reputation. They also need our help! Half of Ontario’s bats are on the endangered list. Join the team from the Zoo’s Native Bat Conservation Program to learn the truth about bats, and the work we are doing to save them.

Learn about the eight species native to Ontario and the equipment we use to study them. Each day visitors can drop by and meet our team to test their hearing by listening to recordings of bats’ ultrasonic calls, and try out a bat detector! Plus make your own bat mask, crafts and colouring. Sign up for one of our ticketed sessions for our Bat House Building Workshop on Sunday.
