A South African filming crew that produces programmes for the German National Broadcaster, is interested in filming the bats and some people on the Island. It would be great for the Island. We hope we can manage to do this and we will be sure to post a clip on the blog!

We are also looking into forming a forum for bat monitoring covering the Western Indian Ocean. We would like all bat lovers and people directly involved in bat monitoring within this region to join us. Please email us on [email protected]

We are attending a fruit bat workshop in Mauritius next week. All the bat people in the region and beyond will be attending. We look forward to that and will provide a short update on it!

Thank you for reading!
