Explore our working groups
The NABat working groups were established to facilitate collaboration among NABat partners. Working groups draw on members' extensive on-the-ground experience in their respective areas of expertise to develop field protocols, prioritize research goals, and update, refine, and clarify NABat survey methods based on feedback from NABat partners, the needs of the NABat Coordinating Office, and changes in available monitoring technology. Existing working groups focus on the following survey types:
Stationary Acoustic Surveys
Mobile Acoustic Transect Surveys
Summer Colony Count Surveys
Winter Colony Count Surveys
Participation in a working group is limited by the size of the group and current needs. Please contact us for more information if you are interested in joining a working group.
