Bats along with bees are essential for pollination and globally bats are credited with pollinating approximately 250 genera of plants. That’s huge!
As with much of our wildlife, bats are suffering because of the fires and drought and many are being left orphaned. Two local sewers are doing their bit to help and are making batty burritos and bags to support the many wildlife shelters who have been inundated with babies.
Echo chick Kath and her mate Emma Moses spent a busy day recently sewing for the Animal Rescue Craft Guild who say anyone is welcome to join from and help set up local teams and support.
