BioBlitz Bobcast: ‪Night Time Bat Walk‬

By Bob Hirshon, Program Director in the Education Directorate of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)

When the sun goes down, the Presidio area of Golden Gate National Parks comes alive with owls, snakes, rodents, moths and, of course, bats. In this video, a Bioblitz 2014 team of bat hunters, armed with ultrasound-detecting devices, hikes through the Lobos Creek and Dunes area of the park, looking and listening for bats.
