Bats of Alberta

Presented by Susan Holroyd MSc, Alberta Community Bat Program Calgary Regional Program
The Alberta Community Bat Program’s mission is to raise awareness of bat conservation issues, help local residents manage bats in buildings, and to collect data needed to monitor and better understand bats in the province. Susan Holroyd of the Alberta Community Bat Program will discuss this province’s bat species, the threats bats face, the ecological services they provide and how Albertans can help with bat conservation. At this presentation you can also learn about what to do if you find a bat, as well as the construction, installation and usage of bat houses. Increase your knowledge about the Community Bat Program and the current initiatives, and receive answers to any questions you might have about these fascinating flying mammals.
Susan Holroyd completed an MSc on bats with Dr. Robert Barclay at the University of Calgary in the early 1990s and has been studying bats and other wildlife in various positions since that time. She has worked as a government biologist in British Columbia, as an environmental consultant in Alberta both with a large firm and as an independent consultant and for the last four years, and has been working as a biologist with the Wildlife Conservation Society Canada, the organization that manages the Community Bat Program.
