Video Showcases Bat Research in BC’s Dry Interior


Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) Canada Western Bat Program Team continues to work to understand how naturally occurring micro-organisms on bat wings can be used to help reduce the effects of the invasive, introduced fungal species that causes white-nose syndrome in bats. This “probiotic project” continues with research partners at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario and with both state and provincial wildlife biologists in Washington and British Columbia. This beautiful short video was shot as the team conducted work in Lillooet, setting up nets and extracting bats in the warm summer nights of the dry interior of BC.
