Latin American Network for the conservation of bats founded at TirimbinaRepresentatives from 11 Latin American countries assembled at Tirimbina Rainforest Center December 10-15, 2009 for the first meeting of the Latin American Network for the Conservation of Bats. Attendees came from Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Brasil, Venezuela, Uruguay, Peru and Mexico.
This conference was possible due to financial support from the Organization of American States (OAS), as well as the intense commitment and hard work of the participants. For the high-level researchers attending and for its results, this meeting was most certainly a historic event in the conservation of neotropical mammals. Tirimbina is proud to have been chosen as host.
