Mike Mutherbaugh

Prior to working with bats in the cooperative unit, I was an interpretive naturalist for a private ecotourism lodge on the coast of Georgia. During my time there I was able to assist in numerous shorebird and sea turtle monitoring efforts. Other previous research experience included songbird and small mammal research in New England.
