Dr. Austin's IL bat presentations were recently featured in 'BATS' magazine!

Dr. Austin (a.k.a. "The Bat Doctor") was recently featured in the most recent edition of 'BATS' magazine.  BATS is an international publication devoted to bat conservation and education.  It is published by Bat Conservation International.  Austin's bat presentation work was just featured (in the Spring 2010 issue) for the third time, although both previous mentions were much smaller.  The current mention received a full page.

Robert Locke, editor of the magazine, felt that featuring "The Bat Doctor's" bat outreach efforts would be a good way to spur on other bat enthusiasts to get out there in the trenches and start giving bat talks as well.

Here is a pic of The Bat Doctor and his oldest daughter (aka "The Bat Girl") displaying the most recent issue of BATS magazine in front of their 'Wall of Bats'. The issue featured a full page article about Dr. Austin's bat outreach efforts. His daughter & 4 of her classmates were with Austin in the photo that appeared with the article.
