Louis Masai live painting for Dulwich Festival

image001

The London Wildlife Trust are very pleased to announce that artist Louis Masai will be painting an image of brown long-eared bats onto the Crescent Wood Tunnel in Sydenham Hill Wood on Friday 13th, Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th May as part of the Dulwich Festival. Louis will be working on the painting between 10:00 and 18:00 on each day

Please join us to watch Louis at work and to learn more from our staff and volunteers about London Wildlife Trust’s bat work at Sydenham Hill Wood

We were delighted to find a brown long-eared bat for the first time in 5 years during a survey this week (pictured above). It is the first record of this amazing animal since one was found hibernating in the old train tunnel in 2011. The tunnel is a registered bat roost which is protected by law. Louis’s painting aims to celebrate the brown long-eared bat and raise awareness about London’s bats

Thank you to the Dulwich Festival for their enthusiasm in organising the event with us and special thanks to Dulwich Going Greener for providing crucial funding for this event and for Southwark Council’s cooperation
