Bats of the Bronx: A New Study on New York City's Wild Bat Population

Researchers from the Bronx Zoo and Fordham University have just conducted the first known published study of bats in New York City.

The WCS’s (Wildlife Conservation Society) Bronx Zoo and Fordham University have announced the results of the first known published study of bats in New York City. The study provides evidence of winter bat activity in NYC and documents the migratory movement of Eastern Red bats and Silver-haired bats through the Bronx Borough. Since little is known about bat behavior in winter, the research results may prove valuable in determining bat migration routes and overwintering strategies.
