BioBlitz Confirms Four Bat Species in Rocky Mountain National Park

Cay Ogden, retired National Park Service wildlife biologist, discusses the bats that live in Colorado’s Rocky Mountain National Park, and why we should do all we can to help bats co-exist with us in urban areas. Ogden’s role in the BioBlitz was to organize two teams of scientists to confirm the seven species of bats known to be living in the park, and possibly to find two more species that some scientists think might also make their home in the mountain preserve.

    Good on Cay for not vilifying cavers. Cavers are bats best friends.
