Listen to the Bats in Your NatureHood!

In late June, Nature Canada held a Bat Detector Demonstration Workshop in Ottawa. This event was part of the NatureHood program where we were able to show members of the public how the devices work and why they’re useful! Participants at the event were given electronic bat detectors which translate the ultrasonic echolocation of bats into sounds you can hear. Check out the video below on the event and hear the bats for yourself!
