Are you interested in joining the Australasian Bat Society’s Cape York Bat Blitz? We are busy undertaking one of the largest bat surveys ever conducted in the remote wilderness of Cape York. Our aim is to collect reference calls, which will be used to develop a call guide to the bats of Cape York. Rio Tinto Alcan is funding the Bat Blitz, which means that this unique opportunity is available at almost no cost to you. You only need to get yourself to Cairns, afterwards we cover your costs.
There are limited places on the second field trip, and participants are selected by random draw. Each field trip runs for 3 weeks (travel inclusive), and you must be available for the full 22 days. The second field trip dates are 21st September to 12th October 2019. You will have to be vaccinated against Australian Bat Lyssavirus, and hold a manual driver’s licence to attend the trip. No other experience is required, but a moderate level of fitness is needed.
If you are interested, fill out this form by 5pm 22nd July and you'll be in the draw to participate!
