2023 State of the Bats

The North American Bat Conservation Alliance released the first ever State of the Bats Report, announcing the latest conservation findings for the continent’s bats including population & biodiversity changes, top threats, and ecological & economic benefits.

Top threats to bats include White-nose Syndrome, habitat loss, drought, wind energy production, and climate change.

Because bats provide vital ecosystem services like pest control, pollination, and seed dispersal, it’s imperative to conserve the 154 species living on the continent.

MWBWG is dedicated to the conservation of bats and their habitats, particularly in the Midwestern United States, and works to address bat-related issues with a regional approach.

WELCOME TO THE MIDWEST BAT WORKING GROUP

As the primary predators of night-flying insects, bats are crucial to the ecology, economy, and health of our shared world ecosystem. The Midwest Bat Working Group (MWBWG) provides a structure for coordination, collaboration, and communication among concerned citizens and professional biologists in state, federal, academic, and private organizations. Although most participants are from Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, and Wisconsin, membership is open to anyone who seeks to collaborate on research and management of bats or to promote conservation by enhancing public understanding of bats.
