Join Wild Intrigue on an urban wildlife safari to discover intriguing creatures of the night in Newcastle City’s lively hub, Ouseburn.
Setting off at sunset with bat detectors in hand, Wild Intrigue will guide you on a journey to track bats down as they emerge from their roosts for ‘breakfast’. Bat detectors bring a whole new level to spying on these elusive mammals, allowing you to eavesdrop on their ultrasound clicks, slaps and pops as they hunt and communicate with each other.
Now more than ever, bats suffer from a bad rep across the world. But these amazing animals have cruised our skies for tens of millions of years – way before the first humans took their first steps. So join us to find out all about the bizarre anatomy and curious ecology of some of our longest-evolved mammals, right here in Ouseburn.
A percentage of profits from our Ouseburn Bat Safaris are put back into helping to conserve the bats in the valley.
There are plenty of wild encounters to enjoy in northern England, explore our full collection here.
