British Columbia Bat Resources

With 17 species, British Columbia has more bats than any other part of Canada. We have none of the exotic tropical species, but our bats have managed to cope with the Canadian winter, a season of cold temperatures and few insects for food. Some of our bats avoid winter by migrating elsewhere; others hibernate in caves or old mines.
(David Nagorsen, Mammal Curator, Royal British Columbia Museum)
