About our speaker:
Merlin is comfortable crawling deep into caves, lugging equipment through tropical jungles, or standing on a stage introducing the world to the Secret Lives of Bats.
Merlin started his bat career as a teenager, has done field research on every continent where bats live, photographed hundreds of species, has been a key force in changing the way the world perceives bats -it’s no wonder he’s affectionately referred to as The Godfather of modern bat conservation.
Merlin couldn’t stand retirement (from his first organization) with so much yet to be done, so in 2014 he founded Merlin Tuttle’s Bat Conservation (MTBC) where he continues to dedicate his life to the study, preservation and promotion of bats and their contributions to our world. MTBC benefits from his lifetime of knowledge, renowned photography and is the legacy of a man who turned his passion into a profession.
He also enjoys occasional fly fishing outings and caring for his persimmon trees.
