Johannesburg Zoo’s Batty October
Contributor: Candice Segal
During October, Johannesburg Zoo celebrated Bat Month with a series of public talks and bat catching events organized with the Bat Interest Group of Gauteng. The bat catching event provided a good opportunity for guests to see free living Cape Serotine bats and Seba’s Short tailed bats in the new enclosure, “Temple of the Ancients”. Public talks were aimed at dispelling common myths and shining light upon the importance of bats. On the 29th, Halloween was celebrated with the display and talk on bat boxes followed by a fund raising event.
