North American Bat Tracker

North American Bat Tracker

Document your bat sightings! IMPORTANT!! Do not touch bats! Provide a picture of the bat and/or a picture of the habitat you see bats using. Provide the location and time Note the the weather conditions Note what the bats are doing, i.e., hunting over open meadow, flying under tree canopy, hanging on a window screen, drinking from a pond, etc. Note how many bats you see in one setting Please do not give a species ID unless you are an expert! It is very easy to misidentify bats, especially when they are flying. We are very interested in documenting colonies of bats, because that's where young are born. Sign in to join mission

We want to know where bats are and what they're doing! North American bats are under tremendous pressure from habitat loss and degradation. Cave-dependent bats are also facing devastating population losses from white-nose syndrome (WNS), caused by a cold-loving fungus that has colonized the caves where they hibernate. Unfortunately, WNS is established in the mid-Atlantic region and many of our bat species are dwindling. Please help us document what bats we still have. Your contributions will help support bat research and raise awareness of bats' vital role in mid-Atlantic ecosystems.
