Are you interested in joining the Australasian Bat Society’s Cape York Bat Blitz? We are busy preparing for 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 each of the two field trips. Each field trip runs for 3 weeks, and you must be available for the full 21 days. We anticipate that the first field trip will be around 5th - 26th May 2019. The second field trip may be later in 2019, or in 2020. 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 and we'll send you more information as it's hot-off-the-press!
