Shari Blissett-Clark, board member of the Florida Bat Conservancy will present her program entitled Bats – Myth and Realty on Thursday, October 26, 2017, starting at 12:00 pm in the Magnolia Room of the wildlife park’s Visitor Center located on US 19. She describes her program as follows: “This program uses high-resolution photography and research to debunk the folklore, myths, and misconceptions that have plagued bats for centuries. Unfounded fears, often fueled by grossly over-stated disease risk and ignorance, are the major contributors to a dramatic decline in the world-wide bat populations. The program discusses bat facts, species diversity, environmental and economic benefits of bats.” The program is approximately 50 minutes long and is followed by a question and answer period. Live bats will be displayed after the presentation.
There is no charge to attend this program
