BRI Bat Research Featured in Boston Globe Story

As Bats Vanish, Biologists Race to Understand Them
By David Abel

GREAT BAY NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE, N.H. — In the twilight before moonrise, a faint shadow swooped overhead and into the surrounding bower.

BRI biologist Dave Yates switched off his headlamp and quietly signaled for his fellow wildlife biologists to stop. They waited a few minutes before approaching one of the large traps they had erected along a winding trail. Yates aimed his headlamp into the October night illuminating their quarry: a big brown bat.
