Bat Conservation | How You Can Help
See a Bat on a Route, Give Us a Shout!
Hey McConnells Mills climbers, Ken Hull here with South Central PA Climbers (SCPC). I’m working with Rob Schorr at Colorado State University to help him spread the word about his bat research here in PA. Here’s a message from him about this important work and how, we as climbers, can help.
"Climbers for Bat Conservation is working with climbers to understand bat ecology and why bats choose certain cracks and flakes. We’re a collaboration between climbers, bat biologists, and land managers to understand where bats roost and where large populations may reside. We are interested in finding bats because of a new disease called white-nose syndrome (whitenosesyndrome.org) which has killed millions of bats in North America. This collaboration has identified bat roosts throughout the U.S., and as far away as Norway and Bulgaria. CBC was developed by biologists who climb and they are advocates for climbing access and bat conservation.
So, if you see bats while climbing, please let us know by emailing us at email@example.com, or visiting our website to learn more. climbersforbats.colostate.edu."
