The fungal disease White-nose Syndrome (WNS) has devastated bat populations in much of North America, with up to 90% declines. The fungus that causes the disease was detected in Alberta in 2022. We need to raise awareness about the importance of bats and bat habitat – bats need our help.

The Alberta government partners with the Alberta Bat Action Team (ABAT) to:

  • provide comprehensive information about Alberta bats
  • help people manage bats in buildings
  • collect data to monitor Alberta's bat population
