Little Brown Bat Habitat and Health

Bat biologist Brian Hickey has a career interest in studying critical habitat, health, and behavioural ecology of Little Brown Bats in Eastern Ontario. His work is focused on documenting population trends and response of Little Brown Bats to artificial bat houses as roosting and maternity habitat. The project provides opportunities for citizen-science volunteers to deploy and monitor bat houses on their own properties. Results are compiled to inform recovery and management strategies for this endangered species.
