The wonderful world of bats
Tracey Jolliffe

To give our hosts some idea of how many people to expect, please register for this café here.

Tracey will introduce us to the wonderful world of bats: what are they? Why do we need them?  What about those myths – do bats get caught in our hair? Do bats really want to drink our blood?

What’s the point of bats, anyway? What makes bats the best animals? Why should we all love them – and what can we do to help them?

Tracey Jolliffe is a Biomedical Scientist in an NHS diagnostic microbiology laboratory. In her previous career as a Veterinary Nurse she developed an interest in wildlife. She is a NatureScot bat licence holder and runs a rescue centre for sick and injured bats from her home in Glasgow. During the early period of the COVID pandemic, she was a member of the IUCN group advising on human to bat transmission of SARS-CoV-2. Tracey is also a volunteer ambassador for Give A Kidney, a charity promoting non-directed kidney donation.
