Join us for a two-part webinar featuring recent research on northern long-eared bat and Canada lynx. An Update on Northern Long-eared Bat and Canada Lynx Management and Monitoring on the Superior National Forest

First, Ron Moen will present results from a 2015-2017 study on northern long-eared bat, a species with a declining population in Minnesota because of White-nose syndrome. Findings of this study are consistent with those reported elsewhere, but have Minnesota-specific outcomes that will be useful for management.

The second half of the webinar will consist of a review of Canada lynx habitat management and monitoring on the Superior National Forest from Dan Ryan. This monitoring work involves using DNA to document reproduction, persistence and hybridization between lynx and bobcats. Population trends are monitored using an occupancy track survey and mark-recapture combined with the DNA analysis.

This webinar is part of the Sustainable Forest Education Cooperative 2020 series. You may register for each session individually for $20.00 or the entire series for $50.00.
