Why did the Bat cross the road?

One of the key drivers of species extinction is habitat fragmentation. Much of our native wildlife, like our rarest species of bats, are highly light sensitive. For these species, our landscapes appear carved up by street lighting. Worcestershire County Council, in collaboration with Jacobs is the first in the UK to trial an innovative street lighting system for wildlife.

How does the Warndon ‘red light corridor’ work? What do highway users think about it? and why did the bat cross the road in the first place? A start to finish run through on ‘how we did it’ and ‘why’, on the A4440 Trotshill Way, Worcestershire.

Stuart is a forward thinking engineer with a manufacturing and consultancy background. He has worked on a variety of projects; PFI’s, major infrastructure projects; HS2, A14 C2H and Smart Mortorways through to lots of local authority schemes; S38 & S278’s etc and even Tunnel schemes.

Cody leads a team of ecologists and environmental managers at Worcestershire County Council. Having experience in the public, private, academic and voluntary sectors, Cody has a particular interest in using land-use planning and Green Infrastructure to help defragment the natural environment and deliver benefits for wildlife and people.

 
 
Speaker
Bobbie Hemmings
Animal Biology Student
 

The future of the UK’s wild bee species is in our hands

Learn about the variety of wild bees, including the solitary species and the diversity that we have here in the UK and how, by raising awareness, we can help them and other pollinators by changing our lifestyles and considering theirs.

Bobbie is currently completing a degree in Animal Biology at the University of Gloucestershire. Looking at an undiscovered area, with a hope to solve a missing link, Bobbie is researching the Varroa mite and the effect it has on Apis mellifera (The Western Honey Bee) and it’s ability to produce the antibacterial properties that are found in honey.
