Dispelling Myths Through Science and Storytelling
Play • 28 min

We speak with Kristen Lear, a bat conservationist and educator, who works as a National Geographic Explorer and an AAAS IF/THEN Ambassador. She also serves as an Endangered Species Interventions Specialist at Bat Conservation International, where she leads BCI’s Agave Restoration Initiative for pollinating bats in the US Southwest and Mexico, and she is also passionate about promoting women and girls in STEM. Kristen discusses how science and story can combine to dispel myths and really grab people’s imaginations and passions. Kristen knows that everyone has a bat story, whether positive or negative, and she loves to touch on that to build a personal story from her scientific studies as “the bat lady.” Learn more in our latest episode about how to spark people’s imaginations and passions with a good story.
