Tucson Audubon Society: The Exciting Night Life of Bats
Part of the Southeast Arizona Birding Festival
Karen Krebbs 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. A live bat will be presented at the end of the lecture. Field trip portion is limited to 8 participants and you must sign up separately.
All activities (unless otherwise noted) for the Southeast Arizona Birding Festival will be based out of the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Tucson – Reid Park, 445 South Alvernon Way, Tucson, Arizona, 520-881-4200.
