Your help with any of the following items would make a big difference to the level of efficiency in our office. To make a donation, or for more information, please call Robert Benson at BCI, 512-327-9721, ext. 27.
Since its beginning, BCI has relied on Merlin Tuttle's personal and now largely antiquated camera equipment to document the world of bats and our conservation activities. To keep building and improving our photo collection in the future, we need two Canon EOS Elan 2 camera bodies ($500 ea.), three Canon Model No. 308E2 flash units ($199 ea.), one Bogan No. 3001 tripod with head ($125), and one Minolta FlashMeter III ($399). We also need new, fast lenses because of the low light conditions often required for bat photography--specifically one EF 20-35 mm F2.8 zoom ($1,599), one EF 70-200 mm F2.8 zoom ($1,599), and one EF 100 mm F2.8 macro ($669).
Slide carousels and sorters are needed for the increasing number of lectures and workshop presentations BCI staff members are giving. We would greatly appreciate four Kodak carousel slide trays ($15 each) and two Gaylord slide sorters ($45 each).
Many thanks to Jeff Allen, Marina Del Rey, CA, for assistance with computer memory; Gregory Contas, West Hartford, CT, and Janette Reid, Berkeley, CA, for contributions toward a new film scanner and software system; and Steve Abbott, Boulder, CO, for donating a Kodak Ektagraphic slide projector.
