Museum in a Box - Bats

Bats make up about one fifth of all mammal species and are the only flying mammals. They play a very important role in our ecosystems, the only major predators of night-flying insects and play an important role in forest regrowth by dispersing seeds and helping to pollinate rainforest plants. The Bats box was refurbished in 2011 and includes new information panels, books and teaching resources.
