Save Ryedale’s bats #DontFrackOurBats

take action

Protected bat species have been identified right next to a fracking site in Ryedale, Yorkshire.

Ecologists have recommended that work must not go ahead at the site until a full investigation has been carried out. But fracking company Third Energy plans to start operations next week – despite knowing bats are nearby.

That could bring bright lights, noise, machines and increased traffic to this quiet corner of the countryside. Without a proper investigation how can anyone be sure what the impact could be on these protected species?

With Britain’s rarest bat – the alcathoe – known to live in Ryedale, this couldn’t be more important.

Please add your name and then tell your friends to raise the alarm today.
