Participate in the Global Biodiversity Festival
For the first-ever Global Biodiversity Festival, Joe has lined up an amazing array of speakers. We’ve been talking a lot about bats on our Ambassador FB Group and on Friday, May 22 at 11 Eastern you have a chance to hear from one of the world’s most engaging science communicators, and a true expert and activist on bat ecology and conservation. You don’t want to miss this chance to see Ricardo Medellin.

Joe Grabowski on Exploring by the Seat of Your Pants
Half-Earth Project Educator Ambassador Joe Grabowski was looking for ways to make his classroom more exciting and scientifically meaningful for his students. What started out as skyping with scientists and explorers has turned into the non-profit Exploring by the Seat of Your Pants which brings amazing live programming to hundreds of classrooms and thousands of students each month. 

Kristen Lear, Bat Biologist
Speaking of bats and in case you missed it, we worked with Joe on this fantastic introduction to bats, in your own neighborhood and across the world. Kristen has worked with Ricardo Medellin on the protection of several endangered bat species in Mexico, including species that make Tequila possible.
