Interactive video lesson plan for: Two Bats and a Spider

Activity overview:

Pregnant bats and the world's largest spider; your average evening in the Amazon.

Studying bats allows biologists to make valuable connections between the animals and their environments, as insect eaters thrive in jungles and fruit-eaters act as seed dispersers and plant pollinators. We may not have netted an incredible number that evening, but the two bats documented provide important insights on the biodiversity of their forest home.

This is a segment in a series about The Field Museum's Rapid Inventory No. 27, a journey through the forests between the rivers Tapiche and Blanco in Peru. Every year, the Museum's conservation group [the Action Center!] gathers together leading scientific experts across a number of disciplines (botany, zoology, geology, and anthropology) in order to gain an understanding of little-known areas of the rainforest. They work with local communities and their governments to help inform decisions made for conserving these unique, precious, and threatened parts of the world.

This expedition would not have been possible without the generosity and help of Corine Vriesendorp, Nigel Pitman, Alvaro del Campo, Tyana Wachter, Ernesto Ruelas, and the rest of the Rapid Inventory team. Thank you for allowing us to join you on this journey, and for giving us the trip of a lifetime.

Special thanks to Mario Escobedo for allowing us to film the bats with him!
