Nigerian Bat Research and Conservation Program

The Bats of Nigeria Project is our flagship research project at SMACON. Here, we seek to document the country's bat fauna, distribution and ecology. A critical component of this work also involves developing local capacity. As interest in bat research and conservation develops among Nigerian students, we aim to encourage sound science that is reliable and publishable in reputable journals, contributing to fundamental bat biology and evidence based conservation.
