Little Brown Bats in Les Cheneaux

Abstract: The Little Brown Bat (Myotis lucifugus ) is our most common Les Cheneaux bat species. Little Brown Bat populations have been declining drastically across the USA in recent years due, primarily, to a fungal infection known as White Nose Syndrome (WNS). An informal 2016 Watershed Council survey indicated, although LCI bat numbers were down, we do have a surviving population.
