Bat Sanctuary Program

In 2017 / 18 the Phytology team launched a bat sanctuary project – extending the natural resources of the Bethnal Green Nature Reserve and seven community green spaces across the boroughs of Tower Hamlets & Hackney.

The two year project raise awareness on the intrinsic value of bats within urban ecosystems by providing opportunities for local residents to engage in the conservation of bats and their fragile urban habitats.

The development of the bat sanctuary is the natural next step in our ongoing biodiversity improvement programme across the Bethnal Green Nature Reserve and our wider neighbourhood.
