Bat management

The Alberta government partners with the Alberta Community Bat Program to protect, monitor, manage and raise awareness about bats.


In North America, the fungal disease White-nose Syndrome (WNS) has devastated bat populations in the east, and has now been detected near Seattle (March 2016). We need to raise awareness about the importance of bats and bat habitat – bats need our help.

Alberta Environment and Parks partners with the Alberta Bat Action Team (ABAT) and Alberta Community Bat Program to:

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