My current project is focused on research and protection of cave-dwelling bats and cave ecosystems in the Brunca region, Costa Rica. This area is known to harbor the most complex cave system in the country and the most diverse bat community, yet the information is still very poor. This study will survey the cave systems in the region, thereby understanding what the most important sites for the bats are. Having information on the diversity of bats in these caves will provide an important tool to guide conservation priorities that will allow us to protect the most important and vulnerable sites.


The project has its own website:
