Miguel Ordeñana, wildlife biologist with the Los Angeles County Natural History Museum will join us on July 14, 2016 to discuss the various bat species that inhabit Southern California. Because of their importance in controlling insects (especially mosquitoes) and pollinating rare plants, it’s crucial these flying mammals are protected going toward the future.
In addition to his work with the Los Angeles County Natural History Museum, Miguel Ordeñana conducts urban mammal research projects (bats and carnivores) and citizen science outreach at the museum. He credits growing up in the shadow of Griffith Park as the impetus for developing an interest in wildlife preservation issues.
