A message from PhD Angélica Caiza!

Do you know if there are bats living in your house?

Have you ever seen bats flying around your house?

Do you have a bat box at your house?

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of the questions above, are at least 18 years old, and live in The Netherlands, I would like to hear from you. I am keen to find out from those who have an experience of bats living at their houses or properties (i.e. roofs, gardens, attics).

My name is Angélica Caiza and I am a PhD researcher at the University of Groningen. I am recruiting participants to interview for a study about bats and people. I am mainly focused on the Province of Groningen, but other areas in The Netherlands are also welcome. If you would like to learn more, would like to chat with me about your experiences, or know someone who may be interested and could pass it on to them, that would be wonderful! Thank you!

To find out more and to take part in the study, please get in touch:
