Forest & Bird South Otago Branch and Catlins Bat Project volunteers, together with Earthlore, bat scientists, DOC, Catlins Area School, and Tahakopa School are discovering where Long-tailed bats fly and forage in the region and matching the locations of bats to habitat and invertebrates present. Highlights will include a bat camp for the school and a community bat trapping evening in the summer, when they hope to discover more about the local bat population, e.g. Are there juveniles? Just males? Females with young? Students will present their findings at the National Bat Conference in 2020.
