Natural History Live

These are free online natural history talks, comprising of a 30-40 minute talk from either an FSC member of staff or a guest speaker, followed by a question and answer session. We host them on Zoom and we will send out joining instructions on the day of the event. Sign up to the FSC BioLinks newsletter to find out about our other online learning opportunities here.

Conserving the Grey Long-eared Bat

Craig Dunton will be joining us in this talk, he has over 10 years’ experience of working in wildlife conservation, with the past 5 years on landscape scale projects focusing on bats and grasslands. He currently works on two projects; the Avon Valley Project, led by Devon Wildlife Trust and for the Bat Conservation Trust as Grey long eared bat project officer, working to protect this threatened species and enhance it’s habitats throughout South and East Devon. This talk will give a brief overview of Back from the Brink and the grey long-eared bat species recovery project. It will cover ecology and habitat requirements of the grey long-eared bat, work progress to date, and successes and challenges with habitat restoration and monitoring.
