Merlin’s talk in Sofia, Bulgaria at the British Council, the educational arm of the British Embassy in Bulgaria, was broadcast on one of Bulgaria’s most popular news programs. The talk was an introduction to bats worldwide. Afterwards, several interested attendees were invited to join us for lunch in a nearby cafe.
After the talk, we drove five hours to the Siemers Bat Research Field Station in the village of Tabachka where neighbors enthusiastically greeted us, having just seen Merlin on television.
