Reserve Wednesday: Bats

September 20, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Bats are a beneficial part of ecosystems worldwide, and serve critical roles as insect pest controllers, pollinators, seed-dispersers and fertilizers. We have 13 native bat species in Florida, but they are facing many challenges, including loss of natural roosting sites in trees and caves.

Join FWC Biologist Kim Chase at the Apalachicola NERR Nature Center as she talks about the roles bats play in our lives and what you can do to help bats thrive.
