      SOFO: Persistence of the Northern Long-eared Bat on Long Island: A Source of Hope for a Threatened Species-Talk by Ph.D. Candidate Samantha Hoff: Adults/Teens

      Formerly a common species, northern long-eared bats are now rarely
      encountered on the landscape throughout much of their range, due to
      population declines resulting from white-nose syndrome. However,
      evidence shows populations off the coast of the northeastern US are
      persisting despite exposure to the disease. Ongoing research
      investigating the mechanisms allowing these populations to persist
      includes tracking bats, studying winter activity patterns and the
      availability of prey, and testing for prevalence of the disease. It's
      clear that Long Island is an important place for bat conservation.
