Bats in Ireland – a Virtual Exploration of Bats likely to Visit your Garden @ Online

This talk will be delivered by bat expert Dr Tina Aughney as a combination of Zoom presentation and videos of bats in in her garden.

This online, virtual experience will be delivered by bat expert Dr Tina Aughney as a combination of Zoom presentation and videos of bats in her garden in Co. Cavan. Tina will go through bats that are likely to be attracted to your garden; hedgerows, plants and flowers that are likely to encourage bat activity; and trees, bat boxes, eaves and crevices in the surrounds of your garden that are likely to host/encourage bat roosts.

Tina has over 15 years’ experience in running bat conservation monitoring programmes and personally has developed a biodiversity haven in her own garden. She is committed to preserving native Irish plants and shrubs, which when under threat from development projects, find a new home in her back garden. Her COVID-19 project in 2020 was to install a pond in her back garden, which is a great way to encourage bats in your back garden through insect predation.

This virtual experience is a free event and will take place during Biodiversity Week 2021.
