Are you located in a priority cell?

NABat has constructed a continent-wide sampling protocol that allows for robust statistical analyses on the status and trends of North-American bat populations. Although NABat is interested in data from all across the continent, some areas are given higher priority for future sampling to aid in the analyses. Prioritising these areas will reduce bias and improve the value of the data in the long-term.

Find where you are located on the map, and see if you could place a bat detector in a priority cell. We would love to help you get started monitoring bats!
