However, because I’ll still be missing a number of bat species from the Western Palaearctic, I’ll be visiting Sardinia, Crete and Israel, along with trying to see all Belgian species!
In South America, I will visit most of the large biomes: the Atlantic forest, the Amazon and Pantanal in Brazil, the Amazon in Peru, cloud forest in Ecuador and the rainforest in Costa Rica.
All these countries have an incredible diversity of bats so I cannot really list all my targets here. One thing is certain though, I have to see all three species of Vampire bat! During my trip to Mexico in June/July, I got 2 of them, only one left, Diaemus youngi!
