Bats are an important part of our ecosystem, providing many benefits for humans. Science helps us understand both resident and migratory bat species and the challenges they face. Update: This video contains sequences in which researchers catch, examine, tag, and release bats as part of ongoing inventory and monitoring studies. During the COVID-19 crisis, this practice has been suspended to avoid any chance of passing disease along to study subjects. This Second Second Century Stewardship series video was produced for the NPS by Rhonda Wasner
