Citizen scientists asked to go batty

Citizen scientists throughout British Columbia are being asked to help increase our knowledge of bats.

“Got Bats?” community projects support conservation of bats by providing educational programs, conducting inventories of bats in buildings, working with landowners who have bats in buildings and establishing annual counts, where volunteers count bats leaving a roost site on their property for four nights over the spring and summer in order to monitor populations.

To learn more about local “Got Bats?” projects, register for the bat count or get assistance to deal with bat issues, call 1-855- 9BC-BATS or visit: www.bcbats.ca
