  Special Documentary film: The Bat Man of Mexico 

   Sunday, March 29, 3 pm

  This is the educational premiere of the BBC documentary film about the work of Rodrigo Medellin, Mexico's very own 'Bat Man'. Since he first kept vampire bats in his bathroom as a child, Rodrigo has dedicated his life to saving them. Now Mexico's most famous export, tequila, is at stake. Rodrigo's beloved lesser long-nosed bat is crucial to the liquor - pollinating the plants the drink is made from. To save both, Rodrigo must track the bats' epic migration across Mexico - braving hurricanes, snakes, Mayan tombs and seas of cockroaches. Rodrigo Medellin will be in attendace at this event.

Co-sponsored with the Québec Centre for Biodiversity Science/Centre de la Science de la Biodiversité du Québec (QCBS), the Office for Science and Society (OSS), the Neotropical Environment Option (NEO), and McGill Science Outreach.
