Profs & Pints: Bats, Tequila's Friends
Profs and Pints presents: Bats, Tequila's Friends, with Lindsay Rohrbaugh, former instructor at Eastern Kentucky University, guest lecturer at the University of Maryland, and wildlife biologist for D.C.'s Department of Energy and Environment.

This Cinco de Mayo, come learn about the creatures that make tequila possible: bats! They're an important pollinator of the magical agave plants that go into making tequila, and that's just the beginning of their story.

With more than 1,300 species across the globe, this diverse group of animals accounts for about one in five living mammal species. While some, like the agave-pollinating lesser long-nose bat, dine on nectar, others dine on fruit, insects, fish, blood, or even other bats.

While Batman looks after Gotham, wildlife biologist Lindsay Rohrbaugh looks after the bats of the District of Columbia, working to study and protect them while most of the rest of us sleep. She'll tell you about the bat species of D.C. and the significant work being done on their behalf. She will also talk about the impacts a deadly fungus has had on our bats and how you can get more involved in learning about your local bats to help conserve them.

You might think you're badass, but are you chase-bats-around-in-the-night badass? No, didn't think so. Come learn from someone who is. You'll gain a renewed appreciation of the fascinating creates that fly the night skies and youll learn what you can do to protect them. The speaker is donating her proceeds from the talk to the Save Lucy Campaign and the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation.
