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.
