Go Batty for Eels
If you're just batty about the environment then why not help out the Kingston University Biodiversity Action Group by joining in one of their conservation projects? The group is committed to maintain Kingston's green spaces and protecting the local wildlife by getting actively involved with the community. By volunteering your time, not only will you be helping the environment, but you'll also learn something, make friends, and have fun.
