2019 Bat Monitoring program
All good things must come to an end. This summer, the Friends of Cedarbrook & Thomson Memorial Parks hosted a series of 8 Bat Monitoring Walks through Cedarbrook Park, helping the Toronto Zoo with their bat conservation and research. On these walks, we used ultrasonic frequency devices to hear and record bat sounds.
We had an excellent turnout for our 8th and final Batwalk on September 12, with a group of 23 bat enthusiasts, some of whom are pictured below.
The Toronto Zoo staff made good use of the bat population data we gathered and commended the Friends for our efforts.
Our final monitoring results for 2019 are given in the summary: bat summary – September 12
