Description

Found in the warm basement of one of the buildings in the HQ area. Following advice from Dr D.F. McAlpine (Curator of Zoology at the NB Museum and bat researcher) and folks at the Atlantic Wildlife Institute, this bat was moved outdoors so that it could find a better spot to potentially hibernate. It is believed the bat was disturbed by ongoing construction and relocated from its potential hibernation locale.
