The Johannesburg Zoo celebrates the only flying mammal in October, the Bat!


Throughout October, Johannesburg Zoo will highlight the role bats play in an urban environment. The zoo will host a number of exciting events including talks, displays, bat viewing evenings and a Bat conservation walk. These events in partnership with local non- profit organizations such as the Bat Interest Group of Gauteng, FreeMe and EcoSolutions will focus on urban bat species and conservation. Bat Talks will take place over weekends to give zoo visitors something interesting to do while visiting. On the evening of the 13th there will be a bat talk and viewing where guests will get a rare glimpse of the new Seba Bat enclosure in the zoo�s unfinished Temple of the Ancients. This will be an ideal venue to give public an up close view of bats.
