18th Australasian Bat Society Conference


3-6 April 2018, Sydney

The Australasian Bat Society is proud to announce that its 18th Biennial Conference and Annual General Meeting will be held in Richmond NSW.

  • When: 3-6 April 2018
  • Where: Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment, Western Sydney University, Richmond, NSW

As usual, we anticipate an exciting program of spoken and poster presentations on a wide range of bat-related topics to be presented by researchers, consultants, educators, wildlife carers and other bat enthusiasts from across the Australasian region.

The conference will be preceded by a half-day forum entitled 'Sydney bats: hidden treasures and flying icons'. This forum will focus on the fascinating bats of the Sydney area and will aim to appeal to a wider public audience as well as ABS members.

Latest results and ideas will be presented on both microbats and flying-foxes by leading researchers, with an emphasis given to practical guidance for land managers and those who just want to know more about these secretive mammals. 

The formal conference program, coupled with an invigorating mix of social events, field sessions and informal discussions, will captivate and inform delegates about the latest information and news relating to bat conservation.

Key dates:

  • Call for Abstracts close: 17 February
  • Early Bird Registrations close: 7 February
  • Normal Registrations close: 28 February
