Bat Group Talk - Conservation research - recording bat species in Indonesia by Livvy Cropper - The Kenilworth Centre

A wide diversity of bat species are found in South East Asia, with bats making up around one third of all mammal species there. They provide important ecosystem services and many are key biological 'indicators', yet they are increasingly threatened by deforestation, mining and direct persecution. Population research is imperative to understanding decline and creating successful conservation actions in order to protect bat species in this under-studied part of the tropics. Livvy's research with Operation Wallacea attempts to uncover how many species are present on the remote island of Buton, Indonesia so that populations can be correctly recorded and monitored over a long-term period.

About Livvy Cropper:
Livvy is an ecologist working in the UK who still maintains a strong interest in bat populations abroad. She studied BSc International Wildlife Biology and has conducted 3 research trips to Buton since 2014, which has resulted in 3 publications so far - two photographic guides to the insectivorous and frugivorous bats of Buton, and a detailed paper describing the species found in two established research zones on the island. This year's trip took her to a remote and unstudied region of Buton, where she was excited to make further discoveries.

Bat Group Talk - The Swarm: An Annual Gathering by Steve Roe - The Kenilworth Centre

Several of our UK bat species visit underground sites late at night in the autumn, often travelling long distances to get there. In a phenomenon known as ‘Autumn Swarming’ this annual spectacle can involve large numbers of bats chasing each other in and around the entrances. What is the reason for this late night party and how do even remote windswept sites in the middle of nowhere have large numbers of bats visiting? Come along and find out more about one of the most magical sights in the bat world.

About Steve Roe:
Steve first joined Derbyshire Bat Group when he was 12. He is currently the Group’s vice chair and one of the partner bat group nominated Trustees for BCT. In 2017 he organised the UK’s first autumn swarming conference together with the Vincent Wildlife Trust and the Bat Conservation Trust.
