Similar to hummingbirds and bees, #bats play a vital role in the pollination of plants, many of which people rely on for their livelihood. #PowerInPollinators #PollinatorWeek

When #bats land or hover over a flower to consume nectar, some of the plants' pollen ends up on the bats fur. It might stick to their face, torso or legs. They then travel to another flower where some of the stuck pollen is distributed and pollination occurs. #PollinatorWeek

Not to mention that most of these supposed vampires, like Vampyressa (left) and Vampyrodes (right) turned out to be FRUGIVORES πŸ˜‚
There is currently only one true vampire species, the recently extinct giant vampire Desmodus draculae, that references vampires at all.

Catching up with progress in our #bats and #climatechange project. Distribution change models nearly complete! We now want to set up a monitoring network across Europe. If you are an NGO and want to join in, please get in touch. #bats2thefuture @_BCT_ @COSTprogramme

It's been two months since the start of the new sampling season and 1st temporal replication has been done for all sites. Studying #bat activity in relation to #HumanPressures.
REALLY open to #collaborations! Always ready for a πŸ¦‡chat.

Did you know? 😱 Not only are #bats usually immune to cancer and arthritis, but they also have unusually long life spans for an animal of their size. We still have so much to learn from these amazing mammals! πŸ¦‡
