The 'bat lady' appropriately named for her 15 years of experience and expertise examining bats thru hands on learning has presented bat chats for Chautauqua Institution audiences, book clubs, garden clubs, church groups and private families filled with fun and facts.
Caroline studied bats domestically and thru extensive international travel. In 2001 she lived in Brazil on an Amazon riverboat studying fruit, nectar, pollen, insect and blood eating bats with Bat Conservation International. In 2004 she participated in a hands-on seminar in the Chiricauhau Mountains of Arizona observing many of the 27 species of bats found in the desert southwest also with Bat Conservation International. She has also observed the giant fruit bats of Australia and the exotic bats in Southeast Asia. She's an expert in Chautauqua's little brown bats, recently suffering from white nose virus.
