Join urban bat ecologist and Bat Conservation Trust’s Built Environment Manager Jo Ferguson for our fourth online Women on Nature and Wildlife talk. Jo will talk about her almost two decades’ experience of researching and helping to protect Britain’s only flying mammals. The talk will focus on her passion – how bats live alongside us in the built environment and what we can do to help them.
Jo has worked for the Bat Conservation Trust (BCT) for the last 5.5 years, first as the Built Environment Officer before becoming the Built Environment Manager in early 2019. Prior to starting at BCT she was involved with bat conservation in a voluntary and professional capacity for over 17 years.
Jo’s more recent professional experience is as an ecological consultant and licensed bat worker specialising in urban bat ecology; providing surveys, mitigation and enhancement advice covering a range of development projects, including residential, commercial and transport. She also has extensive experience in scientific research, working for the Australian Research Centre for Urban Ecology and Earthwatch in Melbourne and is now running trapping surveys for the National Nathusius Pipistrelle Project in south London. Jo is a Full Member of CIEEM, a Volunteer Bat Roost Visitor and a member of the London Bat Group.
