Do you have bats in your attic? We’d like to study them! We are currently planning our 2018 summer field season and are planning to survey bat colonies on the Kenai Peninsula (Nikiski to Homer) and in Southeast Alaska. Each survey lasts two nights: one night of passive counting and one night of catch-and-release. We welcome spectators and participants or are happy to study your bats while you sleep. Please contact us for more information and to have your roost added to our summer field schedule.
Not in one of these areas? No problem, we’re still interested in your bats! Many home owners are participating in a summer bat count which consists of staying up late one night in early July to count how many bats emerge from your roost. Please contact us for more information if you’re interested in participating in an activity like this.
Not a fan of having bats in your attic? We are also piloting an artificial roost box program at sites that currently have a bat colony in a human built structure (e.g. house, cabin or shed). If you would like to information on how to build your own bat house or to have us come out and put one up for you, please contact us.
