Rodrigo Medellín – The biologist championing bats


With a long-standing love of bats, 2008 Rolex Awards for Enterprise Laureate Rodrigo Medellín has spent the past 40 years protecting these universally feared mammals that he recognizes for their crucial role in pest control, seed dispersal and plant pollination. Through a mix of research, education and conservation activities, the man known as “the Bat Man of Mexico” and his Programme for the Conservation of Bats of Mexico have focused on the benefits derived from bats and expanded their activities to 28 of 32 Mexican states, 22 countries from continental Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as joining forces with people in Africa and Asia. Medellín claims that being recognized by the Rolex Awards, a pillar of the brand’s Perpetual Planet initiative, has been a life-changer. Discover more https://on.rolex.org/3rH3oDP
