Bats are an incredible animal. As the only mammal capable of true flight, these animals help tremendously to naturally control insect populations. However, due to a deadly bat disease known as White Nose Syndrome (WNS), Bats in Connecticut and elsewhere in the United States and Canada have met an unfortunate downfall in their populations. We need to do everything we possibly can to help bat populations grow and thrive.

Reporting bat roosts and even individual bats may help state biologists better understand our current bat population and how the animals are faring in the wake of the deadly overtake of WNS.
