Costa Rica 2020

The CRU spent a brilliant couple of weeks spent in Costa Rica at the beginning of 2020, during which 53 bat species were seen in some amazing places.

Dan H, Steve and Fee started the week with Northern Ghost bats (Diclidurus albus) before joining Fiona Reid‘s bat bioblitz at Sylvan Falls where we found 46 species including the amazing Wrinkle faced bat (Centurio senex) plus other rarities.

Dan W then joined up with us and we headed to the Caribbean side of the country and found some Honduran tent making bats (Ectophylla alba) before joining Vino De Backer at the amazing Bat Jungle museum in Monteverde.

Lots of photos to go through which will be posted on our social media pages, but here are a few highlights ^8^.
