AfriBats seeks to mobilize both amateur and professional sightings to fill gaps in our understanding of bat distributions by sharing photos and records whenever bats are encountered in Africa. Data will be used for scientific research and informed conservation actions.
To contribute, create an account on iNaturalist and add your observations. Be sure to include coordinates where the sightings were made along with the species identification (if known). If you don't know, just enter "bats" and the AfriBats community will help with identification. Records need not be new—any photos or records of African bats are welcome!
