Short description of each item:
General Brochure: The general brochure contains descriptive information about overall issues of bat conservation in Bangladesh aspect. It contain six sections including role of bats, myths and reality, threats to the bat population and way how we can help them. It printed in A4 paper with three fold in both side.
Rally Cap: It is designated for conduction the educational program among the school children. It can wear in head with a rubber band during rally.

Friend of nature: The bold line of the banner is “We are the friends of nature” showing the role of bats in creating green earth with a forest background.
Insect control: The banner focused on role of bat in controlling the harmful pest of crops and vector of different disease. The bold line of the banner is “We provide a healthy and colorful earth by controlling insect of different diseases and pest of crops.”
Pollinator – Banner: The bold line is “We help in pollination to create heaven like earth”
Seed Dispersal: The banner focused on role of bats in regenerating the natural forest by dispersing the seed of tree.
Biodiversity: The bold line is “we keep the balance of biodiversity”- illustrating the role of bat roost in harboring a vast range of biodiversity.
Bookmark: It contains the essential and leading organization web address for further consolidation of learning about bat.
Hello, my name is Sigit. I work as a researcher at the Museum Zoologicum Bogoriense, Research Center for Biology, Indonesian Institute of Sciences (Lembaga Ilmu Pengetahuan Indonesia, LIPI) since 2006. My research focuses on systematics and alpha-taxonomy of Indonesian bats, with a specific interest in the diversification and biogeographic patterns of bats on a regional scale. I began working on bats in 2001 when I became a member of Matalabiogama in the Faculty of Biology at Gadjah Mada University as the caver. I joined SEABCRU as part of the student support team for the Cave Bat Group in order to enhance my knowledge, broaden my collaborative network, and strengthen existing research collaborations in the region.

I am a Ph.D. candidate at the City College of New York and Graduate Center at CUNY co-advised by Drs. David Lohman and Nancy Simmons. I graduated from Skidmore College in 2009 with a B.A. in Biology (Integrative), with my primary training in phylogenetics and population genetics on a variety of vertebrate taxa. My doctoral research aims to produce a species tree of the genus Pteropus and answer questions related to their diversification and distribution throughout Southeast Asia, particularly in Indonesia and the Philippines. I will use nascent multilocus statistical phylogeographic methods to reconstruct population histories and examine questions related to the biogeography of flying foxes.
I come from Jakarta the capital city of Indonesia. I am formerly Fauna Flora International Biologist which my field of work was related to biodiversity conservation at high conservation value area that based in Ketapang district West Kalimantan. In the past four years I have been doing some bat surveys in low land primary forest, peat swamp and logging concession as a part of Bats as indicators of forest ecosystem health in High Conservation Value forest in Kalimantan, Indonesia Project under the supervision of Dr. Matthew Struebig and Dr. Tigga Kingston. Currently, I am working on my Master Degree at Universitas Indonesia.
My role in SEABCRU is as a student member to support forest-dependent bat priority group.
Bat Conservation International created this video to illustrate the ways in which the health of our planet depends upon the environmental services provided by bats. The welfare of global bat populations depends on conservation actions that everyone can take on a daily basis. Bats are often harmed because people believe myths and misinformation that have been spread for centuries. Watch this educational video and join us in saving bats! We hope you find this valuable and use it in your conservation efforts. Please contact BCI (http://batcon.org/index.php/media-and-info/about-bci/contact-bci.html) if you are interested in translating the video for greater use!
