1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Creggan Country Park activity centre

Join our team of volunteers and learn how to become a bat ambulance driver.  Ambulance drivers take calls from members of the public who have found a bat either injured or grounded. It is their job to advise the caller on containment and possible release or to collect the bat if injured and bring to a bat carer.

The workshop will cover:

  • Health and safety
  • Bat Handling
  • Bat First Aid
  • Containment
  • Communicating with the public
  • Assessing roost potential (so that the record can be passed to a roost visitor)
  • Submitting records
