Urban Bat Training

I went to Universitas Indonesia, Depok about early last month to give bat handling/mistnetting training to Sheherazade and friends (Ardian, Marsya,  and Shafi) because she will conduct her study on fruit bats at Central Sulawesi this June/July. Well the weather didn’t let us to catch a thing that night though. It was heavy rain just after we set up the mistnets. But it gave all us impression that bat training can be done not only at outdoor instead we discuss about bat handling techniques using equipment and fieldguides we gather before. Thanks to Susan Tsang, she’s the one who asked me to give this training to her students. Probably next time if the weather is nice to us I will catch bats at Depok or anywhere else.
