Women! In science!!

Baturday News is a weekly blog written by Rachael, a 7th grade student and Save Lucy volunteer. Rachael’s interest in bats was sparked by the big brown bats that used the outside of her former home for a winter roost. Her family cheerfully hosted this wild colony for years.

Women in Bat Conservation is a fantastic effort by Bat Conservation International to highlight the important role of women in science.

Hi Everyone! I hope you all had a nice week. It was nice and warm here and I thought the bats would all be happy, but then it snowed. It didn’t snow a lot, but it was enough to make me cold.  The bats were very cold too. I think they decided to stay nice and snug in their little roosts. Hopefully it’ll be nice and warm soon and they’ll be able to fly around and eat some juicy bugs. The bats at Save Lucy are waiting for warmth too.

I thought you all might want to know about an awesome thing that Bat Conservation International is doing. Some of you probably already know this, but just in case some of you don’t, they are featuring a different woman who works with bats every day this month. Some of the stories have been really interesting. I’m waiting for Mrs. Sturges from Save Lucy to be featured! They promised, so it should be soon and then I’ll know someone famous! I’ll keep you posted, but you should all check out their website so you can read about all these interesting women.
