Tucson Audubon Society: Southeast Arizona Birding Festival – The Exciting Night Life of Bats

Karen has studied bats for more than 30 years. 

Learn about this exciting and unique nocturnal mammal and how it is so successful as a predator and pollinator.  There are more than 1,100 species of bats that occur worldwide.  Bats are an important part of our ecosystems and deserve our respect and admiration.  Echolocation allows a bat to fly in total darkness to locate, chase, and capture flying insects.  Bridges and other human structures are important roost habitat for many species of bats.  Nectar bats visit and pollinate columnar cactus and succulents in our area.  Also learn about the threats to bats and how we can help. Afterwards you can join Karen to watch the bats head out for the night at a known roosting location about 15 minutes from the festival venue.
