Bat Reporting

Staff Lead: Brad Toms

Recently, MTRI researchers conducted a visual survey of a larger maternity colony in southwest Nova Scotia.  Last year when this site was surveyed, only 58 bats were documented.  This year however, 157 bats were counted which is a spark of optimism towards the species populations in Nova Scotia.  Along with the Little brown bat, the Northern myotis and Tri-colored bat are also listed as endangered due to white-nose syndrome. 

On May 15th, out bat conservation website will be open again for you to report any bat sightings you have.  Please visit www.batconservation.ca to report any bats you encounter this year.  We encourage you to report any and all sightings, even if you believe it to be a repeat sighting of a bat you already reported.
