Rock climbing and bat ecology: conservation, citizen science
Bat Conservation Trust and the Glamorgan Bat Group welcome bat biologists Rob Schorr and Henry Andrews to discuss the cliff ecology of bats. As bat populations have declined worldwide, biologists and land managers need new tools to understand where to monitor and conserve populations. Schorr is the director of Climbers for Bat Conservation, which is developing relationships with rock climbers to find bats. Andrews is the director of Bat Rock Habitat Key and author of Bat Roosts in Rock to help identify and describe rock-roosting habitat for bats.
Speakers: Rob Schorr (Climbers for Bat Conservation, Colorado State University) and Henry Andrews (Bat Rock Habitat Key/Bat Tree Habitat Key)
