The North American Bat Monitoring Program (NABat) is a large-scale coordinated effort to monitor bat species across North America using standardized protocols and a unified sampling design. NABat was established to address the gaps in knowledge and lack of long-term studies of bat species across Mexico, the United States, and Canada. A key component of NABat’s success is the presence of regional hubs that help coordinate and implement the bat monitoring efforts. 

The North of Northwest (NNW) NABat hub builds upon strong local programs while seeking to increase the efficiency, quantity, representativeness, and integration of data for bats occurring across northwestern North America. These efforts will ensure that long-term monitoring persists in the region. The NNW NABat hub currently includes leadership from Alaska, Alberta, and British Columbia. 

Please contact the regional hub coordinator Cami ( if you would like to contribute data to the NNW hub or want to learn more about regional bat monitoring and research efforts.
