Bat White-Nose Syndrome Found in the West
BatCaver, an ongoing WCS Canada program, has recently discovered two new bat hibernacula - places where bats hibernate during winter months - in the Alberta foothills. Bats hibernate underground for a large portion of each year, and these newly discovered locations help shed light on the mystery of where many species of bats go each winter. To address these critical knowledge gaps, the BatCaver program has deployed over 50 roostloggers - equipment used to record bat ultrasound - underground across western Canada. WCS Canada research into bats in western Canada aims to improve our understanding about the behaviour and ecology of 14 Canadian bat species prepare for the arrival of a deadly fungal disease, White Nose Syndrome.
Through these collaborations, we now have more than 50 bat detectors deployed in hard-to-reach underground locations across western Canada. As we learn where our bats hibernate, and what species use what types of caves or mines, we will be better poised to help fight the deadly White Nose Syndrome that is expected to spread into the west within the next decade or so.
