Episode 29-Bats with Mackenzie Hall

October 28, 2016

October is a popular month for bats – in fact, October 24-31 is Bat Week. However, these mammals have more to offer than just being a symbol for Halloween. Mackenzie Hall, biologist in DEP’s Division of Fish and Wildlife Endangered and Nongame Species Program, joined Bob Bostock to discuss her experiences with these incredible creatures. Mackenzie is a recipient of the Conserve Wildlife Foundation’s Women & Wildlife Inspiration Award and has been involved in a number of projects spanning bat colonies, migrating amphibians, and grassland birds.
