Bat Science Stage

Bat Science Stage is a virtual poster session with networking to showcase some of the cutting edge science being undertaken by bat researchers, many at early stages of their career.

Hosted by BCT, the event will offer lightning talks on different aspects of bat science as well as opportunities for networking and further discussion of topics through the event app.


We have a range of speakers from around the world sharing their science including talks on:

  • Bats get sick? WNS as a potential threat to Mexican bats.
