Building Bat Houses
Our vision for Canada is to protect the population of bats by building bat houses so that they could have their babies in a safe place. It is important to protect bats because they help us keep the mosquitoes away. Bats are an important part of our ecosystem.
“We researched bats and the white nose syndrome and realized that bats are in danger where we live. To help the bats, we decided to build houses to put on the side of the school but then we had a better idea and decided to take them to the Royal Botanical Gardens which would be a better habitat. We used wood and mesh netting and constructed our houses in the school Design and Technology room. In the spring, we will visit the houses to check out if the bats have used them.”
