“Bats are cool” is the message from renowned bat biologist, Iroro Tanshi.
Bats dominate her life, day and night. She and her biologist husband, Ben Obitte, comb the caves high up in Nigeria’s Afi mountains to research, monitor and understand different bat species, in order to protect them.
They relate their inspiring journey and share their award-winning work, revealing the story of their love of bats – and of each other.
