I am pleased to announce that tomorrow afternoon, Wednesday, August 27th we will be doing our first Q&A with an expert in bat biology. She will be here on the board at 5PM EDT/2PM Pacific. I will put the post up a couple of hours beforehand in case anyone wants to put their questions in but won't be around right at that time.
She has extensive experience with bats and worked at Boston University in the bat ecology laboratory where she studied wing recovery of Little Brown bats (Myotis lucifugus) after White Nose Sydrome in New England, as well as coordinated flight patterns and obstacle avoidance in Brazilian Free Tailed Bats (Tadarida brasiliensis) in central Texas. She also worked in a rehabilitation facility for bats that focused on rehabilitating sick and injured individuals, as well as providing long-term care and education programs for non-releasable bats.
Bats are tragically misunderstood creatures and this is a great opportunity to learn more about them or dispel any myths. Please spread the word!
