ACAP Bat Research Project

Jared Tomie: Environmental Project Manager.

ACAP Cape Breton is undertaking an ultra-sonic monitoring of bats around the island.

Three university students; an intern and the project manager are heading out into fields and near still water where bats are known to fly, places where there is lots of food!.

It's all part of the effort to find out more about bats and white nose syndrome. Its a fungus that is devastating the bat population in Eastern North America.

To tell us more about the project we've invited Jared Tomie into the studio.
He is an environmental project manager for ACAP.
