About Fay Taylor

Hi! My name is Fay and I'm a budding chiropterologist. I've been researching bats since my postgraduate degree in 2016. I have worked for both conservation NGOs and ecological consultancies in Mauritius, Malawi and the UK. Now I am studying towards my PhD at Kyoto University where my research focuses on one of the lesser known endemic species, Myotis pruinosus.

I'm afraid I have yet to experience applying for grants for conferences, I've not been to any yet, but I wish you the best of luck in getting there!

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.
