Build a Bat Box
You can encourage bats to roost in your area or school grounds by building and installing bat boxes. We have designed a leaflet describing how to build a bat box here, and you can also watch this Youtube video by Chester Zoo for a slightly different design.
More Bat Education Materials
There are many fiction books available about bats. Here are several that we recommend:
Owl Bat Bat Owl is a picture book suitable for children aged 1+. It is by Marie-Louise Fitzpatrick, the author and illustrator who provided the illustrations for this website. Available from Walker Books.
Stella Luna is a children’s classic by Janell Cannon, the tale of a lost fruit bat who is adopted by insect-eating birds.
The Silverwing trilogy of books by Kenneth Oppel are for older children and are somewhat similar in style to Watership Down.
