Volunteers Needed - Coconino National Forest, Arizona

Volunteers are needed in northern Arizona next summer to help graduate biologist Debra Bernardos locate maternity roosts of southwestern myotis (Myotis auriculus) and run an Anabat project comparing different forest types. Participants will be involved in mist-netting, radio telemetry, roost exit counts, Anabat recording, and creation of echolocation call libraries. Please note that only volunteers with pre-exposure rabies shots will be allowed to handle bats.

The project will begin in mid-June and continue through mid-August of 2000. Any amount of time volunteers can give, from a few days to a week or more, will be helpful. Those who do not wish to camp in the Coconino Forest can stay in a motel in Flagstaff (about an hour away).

If you are interested in gaining valuable bat research experience and seeing up to 15 different species of bats, please contact:
