Collect guano for species ID 1

Bat guano samples can be collected to identify bat species through DNA analysis. To-date, we have analyzed samples from across the province and documented seven species of bats roosting in buildings and bat boxes!

If you have a roost, you can send in a sample. Guano can be collected throughout the summer. In late August, send all samples to your regional or provincial coordinator. Testing is funding-dependent; priority is given to sites with ongoing participation in the BC Annual Bat Count.

Thank you for participating in this citizen science project!
