Learn About Bats of Southern California
Jill Carpenter has been working with and studying bats for 16 years. She currently works as a biological consultant throughout Southern California on projects (such as bridge widening, seismic retrofits, and culvert replacement) where there is potential for impacts to bats and bat habitat. Over the past several years she has expanded her experience to include surveying abandoned mines for bats. She also works on research projects studying the ecology of Southern California bats, with an emphasis on bats in urban settings and along the urban-wildland interface. In addition to her work in California, she has also studied bats in other parts of the world including spending three summers studying the bats of the Sinai Peninsula, Egypt, and participating in a research study on fish-eating bats in the Gulf of California, Mexico. Finally, her background in outdoor education helps her to promote bat knowledge to the public through educational programs, public talks, and workshops.
