Andrew is a wildlife conservationist, National Geographic Explorer and director of restoration and biodiversity conservation with Osa Conservation in Costa Rica. He uses camera traps to capture pictures and videos of secretive species that spend their entire lives above the ground in the rainforest. We'll join Andrew for a lesson about conservation from one of the most biodiverse locations on the planet. The Osa Peninsula is home to half of all the species in Costa Rica, that's a staggering 2.5% of the entire biodiversity of the planet, living on a mere 0.00000085% of the earth's total surface area.

Kristen Lear is a bat conservationist and environmental educator. She got her start in bat conservation at age 12, when she built and installed bat houses for her Girl Scout Silver Award project. Since then, she has traveled the world, including the US, Australia, and Mexico, to learn how to protect endangered bats and to share her passion with the public. In this session, Kristen will provide a glimpse into the world of bats, sharing some specialized research equipment and providing hands-on tips for how students can build their own bat houses and contribute to bat conservation in their own backyards.
