Faculty earns grant for Indiana bat summer survey
Dr. Lynn Robbins, professor of biology, received a grant in the amount of $36,120 from Western Ecosystems Technology, Inc. (WEST) for his “Net Survey for Indiana Bats” project.
This summer Robbins and his team of researchers will study the demography and presence of bats in Indiana. Robbins will look for their nesting locations using radio-tracking technology by tagging captured bats then releasing them back to the wild.
There are 92 potential survey sites to study between May 15 and August 1.
