Staying with a Bat Woman

After going back home in Japan for a while, I came back to Australia again and now I am staying with a lady in Cleveland, one hour drive from Brisbane to the east.
The lady's name is Louise (different Louise from the one on the farm), and as you can imagine from the title, she takes care of bats at home! Not as a hobby but as a conservation volunteering. I met her at the RSPCA event in November and she kindly let me stay with her until I move to the Uni collage in February.

What I am doing here is to help her work with all the bats in care, and making power-point slide show about bats for school educational program. I learn from her work a lot, and also I am happy to be able to do something for wild animals.

These are adult fruits-bats that Louise keeps in a big cage in the garden, and they are called "Edu bats" because she sometimes use them for education.

Cleveland is a beautiful place nearby the beach and there are many parks and nature reserves. Here are some photoes that I took from the bush-walks with Louise's husband Ian who often go for a walk in the morning before going to work.

There will be an educational program at a primary school on Tuesday, so I'm looking forward to it. I hope the children would enjoy my power-point slides and get our message about wild bats.
