SPOTLIGHT: THREE BAT SPECIES ADDED TO PENNSYLVANIA'S ENDANGERED SPECIES LIST
The Pennsylvania Game Commission recently added the northern long-eared bat, tri-colored bat, and little brown bat to the PA state list of endangered species. Projects within 300 meters of known summer roost locations and winter hibernacula used by these bats will require Commission consultation. There are about 30 hibernacula and 120 maternity sites known to support these species that will be added to Pennsylvania Natural Diversity Inventory (PNDI). The legal and industry ramifications of the listing decisions are still unknown.
 
Bat Mitigation News
Surveyors find more than 180,000 Indiana Bats at Sodalis Nature Preserve
A recent winter survey confirmed the Soladis Nature Preserve in Hannibal, MO as a critical hibernating location for Indiana Bats. More than 45 surveyors gathered at the preserve and counted and estimated 180,801 bats.


 
Study: Managed Forests Can Provide Roosting Opportunities for Indiana Bats
A new study suggests Indiana bats may be able to subsist in managed or lightly timbered forests. The study may be used as a guide in mitigation planning to ensure that adequate roost habitats are provided by forest management.

 
About General Conservation Plans (GCPs)
While there are no GCPs currently completed for listed bat species, such as the Indiana bat, U.S Fish and Wildlife Service Region 5 is working to develop a GCP anticipated to “benefit the Indiana bat, the applicant, and the Service.” Learn more here.

 

Magnolia's Project Footprint: 8 of our 12 Endangered Species Conservation Projects (red) provide known mitigation benefit to listed bat species.

It's time to plan mitigation for your next project.
