Bat Conservation International selects Anecia Gentles as a 2022 Student Scholar!

Congratulations, Anecia! As part of this scholarship, she will utilize a variety of field and laboratory methods to understand the ecology of Malagasy fruit bats. She will characterize viral dynamics of Malagasy fruit bats through antibody analysis of bat tissue types. She will determine seasonal resource use through isotope analysis of bat hair. Lastly, she will deploy GPS trackers on bats to delineate the extent of seasonal fruit bat overlap in home range.
