Qalipu First Nation celebrates four years of NABat monitoring
Updated: Apr 5
The Qalipu First Nation Environment and Natural Resources (QENR) team celebrates four years of using NABat protocols to monitor bat species throughout the Qalipu traditional territory, bolstering their terrestrial species at risk research and monitoring program. Through training and support provided by the Canadian Wildlife Health Cooperative and NABat's hub network, the QENR began monitoring bat populations in 2019 and now serves as a member on the Newfoundland and Labrador Bat Recovery Team. Qalipu First Nation represents approximately 24,000 registered members in Newfoundland and abroad and is made up of 67 traditional Mi'kmaq communities across Newfoundland.
