The Grey Long Eared Bat Project and The Creative Cabin will be visiting The Donkey Sanctuary on Monday 9 and Tuesday 10 August to run ‘Completely Batty’ fun activities for all the family.

Everyone is welcome at the FREE drop-in sessions, where they can get creative and celebrate East Devon’s rarest bats, including the Grey Long-eared bat.

Mask making

Bats are nocturnal and choose to hunt and feed at night, but on both days between 11am and 3pm we plan to create our own day-flying bats by inviting children to come to the creative cabin and create bat masks!

Wildflower seed bombs too

Creating connections between wildflower meadows across the whole of East Devon is vital for the protection of the endangered grey long-eared bats, so visitors to the Creative Cabin will also have the chance to make wildflower seed bombs to help kick start wildlife gardens at home and help bats too.

The Completely Batty fun activities are FREE drop-in sessions. No need to book. Visit at any time between 11am and 3pm.

Please be aware that all activities will be running within current Covid–Safe guidelines and if you have to wait before you can take part, your patience is much appreciated. There’s lots more to enjoy at The Donkey Sanctuary and no visit to would be complete without meeting the charity’s resident donkeys or exploring the beautiful surrounding countryside.

The Grey Long-eared bat project is funded by the government’s Green Recovery Challenge Fund and is one of East Devon AONB’s ‘Elusive Eight’ threatened species chosen for nature recovery. For more information visit our Saving Special Species and Grey Long Eared Bat Project pages.
