What can you do for little brown bats?

What Can You Do?

One significant way humans can support little brown bats is by installing bat houses, which provide roosting sites and help offset the loss of natural habitats due to habitat destruction. Additionally, reducing the use of pesticides in agricultural and urban areas can protect bat populations from poisoning. Furthermore, people can aid conservation efforts by constructing shelters for other North American wildlife species, such as birdhouses for birds and Toad Abodes for toads.

What does the Cincinnati Zoo do for Little Brown Bats?

The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden is working with researchers at the University of Cincinnati to study the populations of our endangered bat species in our landscapes. We are helping to create bat habitat and foraging grounds around Cincinnati and at our Bowyer Farm, while also developing community science opportunities for people to get involved and record their sightings (or audio recordings) of bats.  

Did you know? 

  • Little brown bats can eat up to 1,000 mosquitoes in a single hour.  
  • They use echolocation to navigate and locate prey, emitting high-frequency sounds and listening to the echoes.  
  • White-nose syndrome is a fungal disease that has devastated bat populations in North America, causing mass die-offs.
