This is a critical time for cave-dwelling bats

In the U.S., cave-dwelling bats are in their most critical time period now til the end of the hibernation period (end of March or early April for the eastern U.S.). Cavers and biologists take extra care this time of year to avoid disturbing bats who are near the end of their energy reserves. We’ve posted some resources for cavers, including a recent publication on decontamination effects on cave gear. Check out our Conservation page for more details!
