Keynote Presentations


In 2015, WRC's Dr. Susan Koenig held two field workshops and one seminar to demonstrate how to survey and identify bats acoustically using ultrasonic bat detectors.  We've uploaded the presentations so others can learn how bat detectors work and so everyone can better-appreciate the strengths and weaknesses of this important tool for surveying bats.

To see a few examples of the echolocation calls of Jamaican bats, following the links on our Checklist.
