Bat Hibernaculum



Element information

Overview

A bat hibernaculum is a site where bats hibernate over the winter. These sites are most often caves or abandoned mines. They can include one or many species of bats and include both rare and non-rare species. It is important to protect these sites because bats will return year after year to the same hibernation site and can occur in very large numbers.
