Register Your Bat House

Since little is currently known about the optimum characteristics of bat houses in BC, we encourage you to report on the success (or lack of success… these data are important too!) of your bat-houses. By registering your bat-house and its success, you can be part of an ongoing project to identify the characteristics of successful bat-houses.

Remember, it is just as important to report bat-houses that were not successful in attracting bats as those that were. If you have a bat-house, please let us know. Please fill in the following form:

The Annual BC Bat Count is an important province-wide bat monitoring effort. Volunteers across BC count bats emerging from known roosts 1-2 times between Jun 1 and 21 (before pups can fly) and 1-2 times between Jul 21 and Aug 15 (when pups are flying with their moms).
