Hernani Oliveira.jpgI’m a scientist and conservation biologist. I’ve been working with bats for the last ten years. Apart from my love for them, they’ve been my way to understand and discover how nature works. It’s been a long journey during which I’ve traveled and worked in the Brazilian biomes of the Amazon forest, Atlantic rainforest and Cerrado (Brazilian savannah). I’ve also started working in Costa Rica mainly in the dry forest and rainforest during my PhD.

In my experience with education, I’ve worked teaching students from the primary school until the university level. I’ve been a teacher/professor for 7 years. I’ve also taught field courses about bat ecology and the ecology of Cerrado (Brazilian savannah).

I’m also passionated about photography and I use my trips in nature to make my shots and videos to help inform and educate people around the world about the importance of conservation and science.
