Global Bat Conservation Showcase

Global Bat Conservation Showcase

Global Bat Conservation Showcase

The Global Bat Conservation Showcase will provide an insight into the variety of bats found around the world and the efforts being made to conserve them.

We are collaborating with bat conservationists from around the world to share insights into their efforts to save some remarkable species of bats.

We will be showcasing bat conservation projects from across the globe. The event will be hosted by Nils Bouillard, who is no stranger to bats from around the world after completing his Big Bat Year.

Still time to book a ticket!
