This Shedding Light talk features Danielle Dagenais. Danielle Dagenais has been working and volunteering on bat projects since 2011. She completed a Master of Science in 2016 assessing bat foraging activity over vineyards in the Okanagan Valley using an array of unique bat microphones and radar. She has many hats when it comes to bats. She is a Regional Coordinator for the Community Bat Programs of BC (bcbats.ca), the Outreach Coordinator for the South Coast Bat Conservation Society (scbats.org), and has her own consulting company (EcoEd). Her work helps with local bat management and conservation.

Danielle will discuss her roles in the Greater Vancouver Area, and explain the importance of bat work. She will provide an overview of local bats, discuss myths around bats, and identify how you can enjoy and help bats in your local area.

This webinar will take place on Zoom. Registration is mandatory. A confirmation email after registration will be sent to you with the zoom link.
