NH Bat Counts

New Hampshire’s two most common bat species, the little brown bat and the big brown bat, use buildings as their summer roosts. Abandoned houses, barns, church steeples and even currently-occupied structures can provide a summer home to female bats and their young. The NH Bat Counts project involves citizen science volunteers in helping to monitor summer bat colonies to help biologists understand how bat populations are doing from year to year. With the occurrence of white-nose syndrome in New Hampshire, monitoring these colonies is more important than ever.
