Sarapiquí Bat Program Tour
Did you know that bats represent almost 50% of the mammals in Costa Rica? Learn more about this interesting species in this engaging and interactive bats tour.
First, you will view a short presentation about the natural history of bats: classification, diversity, adaptations, reproduction, and other threats.
After the presentation, a trained guide will provide you the opportunity to closely observe some bats caught that night in research projects.
Finally, visit the site where a demonstrative net was placed and learn about the capture method. Bats are caught and held for less than 2 hours to ensure animal welfare.
