Addressing Threats to Bats of North America

In 2016, an electronic survey was sent to all regional bat working group participants asking for their input to rank the threats in their region of expertise. The information from this survey was used to identify the highest priority threats (i.e., those affecting a high proportion of the population or one or more species, and having a large impact on the populations they do affect), to help with prioritizing conservation actions.

A Wiki was developed primarily to allow experts to share information on approaches for mitigating these threats. Please help contribute your information on ways to help conserve North America's bats. Instructions on how to use the Wiki can be found here.
