Bat Conservation ~ by WoodlandsTV

Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

Here Jenny Clark MBE, founder of the Sussex Bat Hospital and dedicated bat conservationist and wildlife educator, shares her expertise and passion for her work in caring for grounded and injured bats. Jenny introduces us to some of her rescued bats - Noctule, Whiskered, Common Pipistrelle and Brown Long-Eared - and explains how she must first carry out an all-round health check on each one, including looking for and treating any injuries. When each bat is fit and well and has reached ideal weight, it must then pass the `flying test` - assessed for skills, stamina and attitude - before it can be successfully released back into the wild. This will be impossible for some bats - but they then become part of Jenny`s team of educators - giving members of the public the opportunity to encounter bats and to learn more about the importance of bat conservation. Jenny`s expert, gentle care for the bats is clear, as is her wealth of knowledge as she speaks about what we can all do to help protect and preserve our native bat species. http://www.bats.org.uk/ An Adliberate film http://www.adliberate.co.uk for WoodlandsTV http://www.woodlands.co.uk/tv

I adore Jenny Clarke, she's just magnificent. I've seen other interviews with her discussing her lovely bats and she's just as passionate and knowledgable in those too x
