Summary of Project
The conservation status of many species of bats, an important component of the mammal fauna of northern Australia, remains poorly known. Historical records of significant roost sites remain to be updated in the face of recent land changes. This project is designed to explore and update the conservation status of key species of bats in northern Australia, using this information to understand the ecological requirements of these species and to provide robust advice to wildlife management agencies.
