Bats were created by God and are of great environmental importance. Hence, they need to be conserved!



Cotton Tree and surroundings

In Freetown, the bats roost downtown. They can be found on the Cotton Tree, a famous historic landmark, as well as around the nearby State House and Victoria Park. The latter has been transformed into an amusement park. We hope for a bat-friendly way to solve potential conflicts between humans and bats at this traditional roost site, which has been used by Eidolon for decades.
