Friday Bench: Inside the Bat Cave

Bench in the bat enclosure at Durrell Wildlife Park

This wasn’t the only use of recycled tyres inΒ the bat enclosure at Durrell Wildlife Park. Filled with earth, they form the walls too.

It makes for heat retentive walls which helps to maintain the temperature required to keep the bats happy at night and has significantly reduced heating bills compared to the previous enclosure.
