Synopsis

Dr. Angela Nina Ann Rivera Ingle braves not only the forest by going on foot and hiking up a mountain, but she also dares to touch creepy creatures of the dark. How were she and her assistant able to do it? By seing up nets 10 meters high and patiently identifying them without harming or killing them at all. Dr. Ingle is well known for her 1992 publication, “A Key to the Bats of the Philippine Islands,” the first publication of its kind that enabled scientists to identify the 70 indigenous bat species then known in the Philippines. ​
