Bats are some of the most unusual and ecologically beneficial animals in the world, saving farmers billions of dollars in pest control every year. They are also the only mammals that truly fly. Wisconsin has 8 species of bats but some species are threatened due to a deadly disease, white-nosed syndrome. In this workshop you will learn about the ecology of these fascinating creatures and how the Wisconsin Bat Program monitors and assesses bat populations across the state. Learn how you can help survey bats by participating in Wisconsin’s Citizen Based Monitoring Network.
