Conservation biology of the grey long-eared bat

In June 2011, Orly Razgour, PhD student of the University of Bristol, carried out a survey on grey long-eared bats (Plecotus austriacus) in Jersey. Orly visited six sites during her three day visit and offered a training session to the Jersey Bat Group about the conservation biology of these bats. This visit was very successful with grey long-eared females and males recorded, along with brown long-eared (Plecotus auritus) and the common pipistrelle (Pipistrellus). In September 2011, Orly presented her findings so far at the Bat Conservation Trust national conference at the University of Warwick.
