JUPITER, FL (PRWEB) March 10, 2018
Busch Wildlife Sanctuary has partnered with bat removal and awareness expert Friends of Bats to bring a night walk focusing on bat education and s’mores March 16 with the doors opening at 6:00 pm.
The event “All About Bats“ night walk, is a first of its kind at Busch Wildlife. Dan Bozone from Friends of Bats will be bringing a bat echo locator device that will help identity bats in the trees and surrounding structures. “We want to engage and educate all ages. Therefore we thought it would be fun to bring a piece of equipment that amplifies the unique sounds of the local Jupiter, Florida bat population.”
The idea behind the event is to bring awareness to how bats live, where they live and how to take care of bats if they are found on your property. A hardly known fact about bats is that they are protected under law in the state of Florida and residents can’t do bat extermination. This environmental protection is why Dan Bozone of FriendsofBats.com is so adamant on education and awareness. “Homeowners who find bats in their attic or property managers at a condo may think they can easily terminate bats, but what they need to know is how to evict them instead. Bats make terrible house guests but great neighbors, so understanding how to safely and humanely remove bats is key to following the law and protecting our animal friends.”
