Join Portland Audubon for a night with Cris Hein of Bat Conservation International as he educates us on how we can change our behaviors to help advance and protect these mysterious creatures of the night.
The perception of bats is shifting in a positive direction and more people recognize their intrinsic, ecological, and economic value. Yet, bats face unprecedented challenges around the world, such as persecution, disease, toxins, wind turbine-caused fatality, climate change, and habitat loss or alteration. Understanding how to resolve these issues is challenging because bats are notoriously difficult to study; they are small, nocturnal, volant, and emit sounds above our hearing range.
However, advances in technology offer new insights into the biology and behavior of these animals and provide opportunities to develop solutions to these issues.
