Introduction

Hi everyone, I'm Fay, a PhD student studying bats!

I've been working with bats since 2016 where I discovered them during a pretty spectacular PG Dip course ran by the Durrell Conservation Academy in Mauritius. Since then, I've been fascinated by them and have worked in Mauritius, Malawi and the UK in research and ecological consultancy. I'm not combining my dream of living in Japan with studying bats, here at Kyoto University. My project is still in the planning stages but we're getting there.

I'm hoping to network and improve my skills to become an effective conservation professional for my post-PhD life.

I'm keen to keep pushing for a better future for these misunderstood creatures!

Hey @Fay Taylor what an incredible picture. I absolutely love bats and have been lucky enough to help out on surveys down in Devon and Cornwall. I would definitely love to hear more about your research and anything you have learned in the process - especially advice and tips as well as more bat pictures! so please feel free to share in a post if you like :)

The PG Dip course run by the Durrell Conservation Academy in Mauritius sounds really interesting too I will have to have a look as I know they're really big on their fruit bat conservation. 

Definitely agree we need more love for bats 🦇

Please let me know if there's anything we can do to help or if you have any questions either by messaging myself or @Thirza Loffeld or emailing at hello@wildhub.community

Thanks :)

Thank you! Always keen to share the bat love! 

It's a wonderful course! I studied 'Endangered Species Recovery' and it really was a turning point for my career. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
