Danielle O’Dell, Ecologist, has been studying the island’s bat population and offers an overview on what kind of bats live on Nantucket, how they are faring as well as a look at how Asian bats played a role in the recent COVID 19 outbreak and what local scientists need to know about their relationship to COVID on Nantucket. In addition to studying bats Danielle works on several projects examining the population dynamics, population genetics and effects of a saltmarsh restoration on rare spotted turtles (Clemmys guttata), aids in nesting shorebird protection, conducts inventory and monitoring work on several other rare species, develops research protocols, compiles and analyzes data, and supervises seasonal field assistants.
