Bat Society field trip to Mount Zero-Taravale

Sanctuary Mount Zero-Taravale
Field ProgramScience: surveys and research

April 2014: Mount Zero-Taravale is located in a hotspot for bat diversity. Up to 39 bat species are expected to occur on the property. This exceptional diversity made it an ideal location for the post-conference field trip following the 16th Australasian Bat Society Conference, which was held in Townsville in late April.

As part of the field trip, 62 bat researchers, rehabilitators and enthusiasts visited the wet sclerophyll and rainforest ecosystems in the higher altitude area of Mount Zero-Taravale. Working with AWC ecologist and Bat Society member, Eridani Mulder, a wide range of bat trapping equipment was deployed as part of a two night survey including 12 harp traps, 3 mist nets and a 4-tier 30 m high canopy net. In addition, around 15 bat detectors (including the Anabat SD2, Express, Nanobat, Echometer Touch and BATon) were deployed around the sanctuary.

A wide range of bat species were detected and/or captured including the Fishing Bat, the Northern Forest Bat and the White-striped Freetail Bat.
