Are they good, or are they evil? That is the question set to be answered on a guided walk through the La Mata Natural Park, looking at bats in their natural environment

As the tour information says, human beings have a tendency to fear the unknown, and we subsequently assume that unknown to be bad, dangerous or harmful. That is exactly what has happened with bats and other animals that, the cinema and the false beliefs of humans, have brought them to the brink of extinction.

To try to dispel the myths, the Natural Park of La Mata-Torrevieja will host a guided walk that will take you to see bats in their natural environment, and dispel the false myths and legends about them, through an activity framed within an evening stroll through the natural parkland.

During the walk, your informative Spanish guide will tell you all about bats, their world and their customs, as well as their “superpowers” of which humans can only wish for, and at the same time preserve this fascinating species in danger of extinction.

The activity will consist of a small talk at the Interpretation Centre, in Spanish, followed by a field trip to detect the presence of bats in the park.

You are also invited to bring your sandwiches to enjoy in the natural park at night, just like our friends do bats.

So, do you dare face the bats?
