Acoustic Bat Monitoring Spring Series

Acoustic Bat Monitoring Series 

Co-hosted by: 

Native American Fish and Wildlife Society, U.S. Geological Survey, and Oregon State University 

Through a partnership between Native American Fish and Wildlife Society, U.S. Geological Survey, and Oregon State University, we are excited to present a two part webinar series on acoustic bat monitoring. No matter your geographic location, bats play an important role in many habitats around the world. Some plants depend partly or wholly on certain bat species to pollinate their flowers or spread their seeds, while many bats help control insects by feeding on them. Bats are ‘indicator species’, changes to these bat populations can indicate changes in aspects of biodiversity. Join NAFWS, USGS and OSU to learn about how to monitor bats using acoustic equipment. Our spring series will address the basics of acoustic bat monitoring, and our fall series will dive into processing regionally specific acoustic bat data.  This webinar will cover how to define goals and objectives of an acoustic bat monitoring program, basics of echolocation, detector types and equipment, monitoring methods (active vs. passive), site selection, detector placement, and data management.

In Recognition of Their Support

The Native American Fish and Wildlife Society would like to thank those organizations that provided us with support over the years.
