Once there were thousands: Bats, their parasites, and white-nose syndrome

July 6, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Learn about our local bat populations at a talk by Acadia undergraduate student Taryn Muldoon, who has been working with MTRI on a project using bat poop to detect the disease-causing white-nose syndrome and intestinal parasites in Nova Scotia bat colonies.

Starting in July and running until the end of August, MTRI will be hosting weekly seminars on Thursday evenings from 7 – 8 p.m. These seminars will be hybrid so you can join online or stop into our field station at 9 Mt Merritt Rd, Kempt to join us and grab some snacks and light refreshments. Our seminars will feature speakers on a range of conservation, indigenous knowledge and wildlife topics including bats, the Terranaut Club, forest fires in Nova Scotia, mushrooms, Mi’kmaw Moons and climate change; just to name a few. To watch our seminars online you can register via Zoom or watch our Facebook livestream.
