What's the talk about?

 Tom is an Ecologist and Technophile in equal measure, speaking about bats and the ways technology is changing research. 

In this entertaining talk Tom discusses bats, from the way they navigate in total darkness to the food they eat and the valuable role they play in our lives. There is audience participation through quizzes and a simulated disease outbreak (watch out for those beach balls!) with plenty of chocolate rewards. Tom rounds of the talk by introducing his research on bats' social network, highlighting how his work has furthered our understanding of bat conservation.

From Carl Sagan to Tim Peake
