Ecoscope visit to Saighton Primary school

Last week we visited Saighton Primary school to speak to the students about wildlife and development. After a brief presentation and a demonstration of bat echolocation with two students dressed as a bat and a moth (!) the students had the opportunity to get close to a rescued Pipistrelle and Noctule bat.  The students asked some very pertinent questions and it was great to speak to such an interested bunch. All children seem to have an inbuilt interest in nature, the challenge is to nurture and feed that interest to propagate the next generation of ecologically minded adults!
