Nature Night at Sugar Moon:

BATS!

 

Friday, November 9

5:30pm to 9:00pm

 

Bats are interesting creatures! 


In this presentation, Chiropterologist Jordi Segers will be talking about the diversity of bat species around the world and why bats are important and not to be feared. 


He will also bring it closer to home and talk about the specific bat species that we have in Nova Scotia, the devastating effects that white-nose syndrome has on bats, and what you can do to help bats right in your backyard. You will be surprised at how much there is to learn about these amazing and elusive little mammals who are the true superheroes of the night sky.

Wrap-up


Jordi Segers started working on bats as a graduate student at Saint Mary's University in Halifax in 2012, conducting his fieldwork right in the maple forests of the Sugar Moon Farm. He spent many days and nights radio tracking bats here and became very familiar with the maple forest, occasionally enjoying a delicious pancake at the end of a night shift. 

After graduation in 2014, Jordi went on to become the National bat white-nose syndrome scientific program coordinator with the Canadian Wildlife Health Cooperative, based out of Charlottetown, PEI, where he has been working since. In his current job he is tasked with bringing together biologists, wildlife managers, policy makers, as well as working closely with the public to build a response to this emerging wildlife disease (white-nose syndrome) that is rapidly killing bats in Canada, in an attempt to save the endangered bats from possible extinction.
