delhibird talk series presents Rohit Chakravarty:

Delhibirder Rohit Chakravarty is a wildlife researcher whose work focuses on bats. Having grown up in Nagpur his interested in wildlife was sparked in the most typical Central India way – with a tiger sighting. But his loyalty shifted to bats when he rescued a fruit bat at the age of sixteen. He has worked on bats in the Western Ghats of Maharashtra, the Andaman and Nicobar Islands and more recently in the Himalayas of Uttarakhand. He is an alumnus of Wildlife Biology and Conservation at National Centre for Biological Sciences, Bangalore.

Bats – amazingly diverse, extraordinarily adapted, truly enigmatic, but much maligned; this talk serves to introduce people to the ways of life of the most diverse group of mammals in our country, and why we they deserve more of our attention. The talk is also about journey and adventure from vastly different regions of the country in the pursuit of bats.
