BRING BACK THE BATS

Wellington Caves will be the Centre of Research for the Micro-bat species. Our team are undertaking a unique project that will educate our community and create a habitat for the conservation of this native species.

Bat Team

Water Tank

A disused water tank within the reserve of Wellington Caves will be turned into a man made habitat. Monitors and data loggers for atmosphere readings will be installed so scientists can survey and collect data for the conservation of this native species.

Habitat

The collection and propagation of seeds will see the community get involved with the planting of trees to improve the natural habitat on the reserve. This will educate on the importance of a healthy ecosystem. 

Bat Box

Get hands on, with the support of Wellington Mens Shed our schools and community can directly engage with the return of mirco-bats into our local bush through this hand made Bat Box.  Use our form below to enquire how you can get involved.
