There are 10 species of bats on Vancouver Island, and those most commonly admitted at Wild ARC include Little Brown, Big Brown, Silver-haired, and California Bats. They most often end up at Wild ARC in the winter if their hibernation is disturbed by construction or other human interference.
Bats help maintain healthy ecosystems by regulating insect populations with their incredible bug-snacking skills - but sadly, bats are in trouble. They are among the most endangered animals in the world, facing threats from habitat loss, pesticides, diseases, climate change and outright persecution.
