Today we are pleased to welcome US bat biologist Ashley Banks for our first ever expert Q&A. She is here to answer any questions you may have about bats, big or small.

Ashley has extensive experience with these unique creatures. She 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.

She will be joining us at 5PM Eastern/2PM Pacific. Feel free to start asking your questions now and she will be happy to answer them when she arrives.
