Grab a fermented ale of choice as you join us for Zoo New England’s Conservation Lecture Series. Each month will highlight a different brewery and science or conservation project. Our October lecture will begin with a meet and greet with our animal ambassadors and then transition to an in-depth look at a favorite Halloween animal: The Bat.
Amanda Melinchuck will discuss common bat myths and misconceptions, why bats are important to the ecosystems they inhabit, and introduce us to the bats in Massachusetts and the common threats they face. We'll also learn a little more about how to live in harmony with bats, how we can help bats and look at some of the ways that bats are identified through Echo meters.
Proceeds from this lecture series support the operation and continued growth of Zoo New England, its education programs and conservation initiatives.
