As the weather warms up, bats are returning from hibernation. The Sunshine Coast Wildlife Project is asking for community assistance in monitoring the return of the bats and detecting any signs of White-nose Syndrome (WNS).
White-nose Syndrome is a devastating fungal disease responsible for the death of millions of bats in eastern and central North America.
Residents with known roost sites are asked to please record and report when bats first return to roost sites. All community members are asked to report dead bats right away by emailing email@example.com or calling 604-989-1007. Remember to never touch a bat with bare hands.
