Bat BioBlitz Detects Endangered Species in B.C.’s Flathead River Valley

Bat - Worthing

Conservation groups have answered a request from the B.C. government to help study a group of species soon to face devastating population die-offs -- bats – and have released a report about bats in the Flathead River Valley just in time for Hallowe’en.

The groups organized a formal inventory in July that brought together 10 bat biologists and seven citizen scientists to conduct the first-ever BioBlitz dedicated exclusively to the study of bat species in the Flathead. The BioBlitz follows a public plea made in June by B.C.
