For the first time ever, the Western Bat Working Group biannual meeting will be brought to you live, in your hometown, wherever you live, virtually through Zoom.
Stay connected and join fellow bat biologists, researchers, managers and students for a two-day virtual event.
Presentations from students and professionals will be shared live via Zoom. Themed panel discussions in virtual break-out rooms will allow participants to go in-depth on important bat-specific topics. Opportunities to connect will be integrated and a live raffle will cap off the festivities.
This year’s meeting will highlight many of the interesting projects that bat researchers work on when field opportunities are limited, and maybe some of that old stuff they never had the opportunity to present in the past as well as news of range extensions and other unanticipated bat-happenings. The meetings will also offer a great opportunity to get updates on NABat, state-wide surveys, white-nose status, and perspectives on the future of in-field bat research.
Share your knowledge! Present your research! Tune in and learn!
