Real Science Being Practiced in Yuma

Student Monitors Vampire Bats Through USDA-APHIS Internship

Dr. Cecilia Vigil, Professor of Biology, recently attended a workshop involving Vampire Bats in Campeche, Mexico.  Scientists from Mexico and the US participated in the workshop and much was learned that will be shared with students and colleagues. This opportunity came about through Arizona Western College’s USDA-ACIS grant funded by USDA-NIFA, where together an internship is collaboratively supported for one student a year to work in Yuma monitoring the presence of Vampire Bats in Yuma.
