Thank you for a great 2014 ATBI Conference

Thank you to all who participated in, and attended our annual ATBI Conference of March 2014. We believe it was very profitable: not only for the attendees in general, but for the gathering and collaboration of experts in the field of conservation biology. We were also delighted and enthused by the presence and presentations of our keynote speaker, bat conservationist and author, Dr. Merlin Tuttle.

Thank you Dr. Tuttle!
