Three species of bats have been documented to occur in Fundy National Park: the little brown bat, long-eared bat, and the tri-colored bat.
Bats are a flying mammal and closely related to rodents. Like in other parts of North America, bats in Fundy have been affected by the White Nose Syndrome. They are now designated as Endangered by the Species At Risk Act in Canada, read more about bats and white nose syndrome.
The hope is that bats will one day once again be a common sight in Fundy. Until then, Fundy continues to protect the critical habitat of these endangered species, including over-wintering sites in the park, a critical part of their habitat.
