This year’s Bat Blitz in Nevada
Over 12 species were identified during this year’s Bat Blitz. Each year the Nevada Department of Wildlife, the National Park Service, Nevada Natural Heritage Program, the U.S. Forest Service and the Great Basin Institute team up to trap bats. The goal is to learn more about the health and diversity of the bat species in the state. Kelsey Retich is a Wildlife Biologist in the Southern Nevada District in Las Vegas. Here, she provides her personal experience of the event.
