New Scientific Advisors. 2000

Wildlife Biologist Bruce Thomson, with the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Services in Australia, has accepted an appointment to BCI's Scientific Advisory Board. As president of the Australasian Bat Society, Thomson will work with advisory board members Les Hall and Greg Richards, and will help coordinate BCI's assistance with Australia's conservation needs, including monitoring efforts on behalf of the country's grey-headed flying foxes.

Dr. Arnulfo Moreno, of Ciudad Victoria, Tamaulipas, Mexico, has also agreed to serve as a scientific advisor. BCI first supported Moreno as a student scholar researching conservation priorities for endangered greater long-nosed bats (Leptonycteris nivalis). Today, Moreno continues to work with BCI on critical initiatives in Mexico.

In China, former student scholar Dr. Ya-Fu Lee serves as a scientific advisor from his position with the Institute of Zoology, Academia Sinica, in Taipei; and in India, BCI is pleased to work with Dr. Shahroukh Mistry from Grinnell College's department of biology.
