'Batgirl' Thrilled to Receive new Wildlife Acoustics Research Tools

Though she's still in high school, Alexis "Batgirl" Valentine is already an award-winning bat researcher. In fact, the precocious and passionate teen has been studying bats since the third grade. When she isn't in the field or in school, she is out educating her peers and other scientists about the importance of bats and the threats that they are facing. 

In New York, bat detecting is a walk in the park

In New York, bat detecting is a walk in the park

This past summer was a busy one for New York’s Central Park as always, but not just while the sun was out. This year, it was also the site of several very popular nighttime bat walks. In fact, they were so popular that they were sold out!

Hosted by the American Natural History Museum and led by New York City Bat Group volunteers, participants of all ages would gather up around dusk, hold up ultrasonic bat detectors, and hear bats all around them, many of them for the first time. With the help of these ultrasonic bat detectors, including the Echo Meter Touch, participants could not only hear bats which are typically inaudible, but they were also able to see the diversity of species living in the city--something that is not obvious to those that only visit the park during the day. The evenings started near balcony bridge but they ended with a whole new appreciation of the the nocturnal wildlife that occupy New York City at night.

Each Discover Bats! book comes with a Quick Start Guide. You get a school week’s worth of lessons. Nicely organized into Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced levels, the Quick Start Guide provides easy-to-follow lesson plans, applicable to grade school, through high school science and biology class needs. Bundled with our Echo Meter Touch, it is a great way to introduce students to the fascinating world of bats.
