The last Bat Monday / Le dernier Lundi des Chauve-souris 17 June 2019



Dear Bat Monday followers, Following review of our national WNS response program we are working on evolving and improving delivery of national situational awareness on bat health in Canada. As part of this effort we will discontinue delivery of our weekly Bat Monday and roll out a more Canadian focused monthly update instead. We will keep compiling the latest publications on bat health and ecology as well as inform our community of funding and learning opportunities and will add a featured story/topic with each release. Stay tuned.

Chers lecteurs assidus de notre Lundi des chauves-souris, Suite à une revue de notre programme national de réponse au Syndrome du museau blanc, nous travaillons présentement à faire progresser et améliorer la diffusion de la sensibilisation à l’échelle nationale sur la situation de la santé des chauves-souris au Canada.  Une partie de cet effort consistera à cesser la diffusion de notre Lundi des chauves-souris hebdomadaire et à produire plutôt une mise à jour mensuelle centrée davantage sur le Canada.  Nous continuerons de compiler les publications les plus récentes sur la santé et l’écologie des chauves-souris et d’informer notre communauté sur les opportunités de financement et d’éducation, et nous inclurons une histoire ou un sujet particulier dans chaque édition de cette mise à jour. Demeurez donc à l’écoute.
