The Secret Service of Bats

This summer, students attending the Eco-Camp at the VI Environmental Resource Station (VIERS) will be initiated into the mysteries of the bat world by Danielle Fibikar, a researcher from the College of Staten Island in New York City. Although bats are the only mammals that are native to St. John, most people don’t really know much about the intriguing work they do.

Ital talking to UU Tree Project participants at VIERS

During the recent Unitarian Fellowship retreat at VIERS (the VI Environmental Resource Station), Ital Delroy Anthony led our group on a nature walk around Lameshur Bay. When he was growing up on St. John, his mother taught him about the uses of different plants and now he shares that information with others, along with stories about traditional Virgin Islands culture.
