Acoustic Bat Blitz 2023

October 22, 2023(CT)7:00 pm - October 31, 2023(CT)7:00 am

Capture

If you have a bat detector and way to identify which species you detected, get it out *tonight* to help us learn cool things about bats and inform the public about it.

Simply deploy the detector overnight somewhere: your backyard, your favorite park, your field site, at your office…..

Identify the species you detect. Even if you think you’ll get no detections, try it anyway: you might be surprised and knowing where bats aren’t active is also important and interesting.

Report the results using this form: https://forms.gle/ybDMRKWRo8r7tEFm7 this should only take a couple minutes.

I will assemble the results over at https://batamp.databasin.org/ and use https://visualize.batamp.databasin.org/ and start reporting out where we detect species midway through #BatWeek to maximize engagement from the public.

Record bats on as many nights and sites as you want and try to submit results after each night. Remember that reporting nights when no bats were detected is important data too!

COST: Free if you have a bat detector
