Bat Habitat Study at the National Seashore


PROVINCETOWN – The Cape Cod National Seashore will be hosting a bat research team this fall, researchers from State University of New York College Environmental Science and Forestry are working to better understand the animals.

Scientists are working to understand bat ecology and habitat use at the Seashore and surrounding area. Research is being done to also study White Nose Syndrome, a lethal fungal infection killing bats.

The studies will provide information to guide effective and efficient management planning for bats. Current work at the Seashore is primarily concerned with bat habitat, researchers will be in the field from September through late November, much of the work will take place between 8 pm and 3 am weather permitting.
