This program emphasizes the recovery of the two Endangered species – the Indiana myotis (Myotis sodalis) and gray myotis (M. grisescens) – and two Endangered subspecies – Virginia big-eared bat (Corynorhinus townsendii virginianus) and Ozark big-eared bat (C. t. ingens). However, we continually seek opportunities to benefit imperiled species at home and abroad.
We also seek opportunities to maintain or increase populations of other species considered rare due to limited geographic distribution or habitat specialization, relatively small – or unknown – population sizes, or emerging threats.
Current program work includes developing conservation strategies for two rare southeastern species, Rafinesque’s big-eared bats (Corynorhinus rafinesquii) and southeastern myotis (Myotis austroriparius).
