Bats and White-nose Syndrome in Canada

The Government of Canada has added three species of bats to the List of Wildlife Species at Risk in Canada (also known as Schedule I of the Species at Risk Act) as Endangered due to the threat of White-nose Syndrome. This page has been created to provide information for Canadians on the Emergency Listing Order, the disease threatening the bats, the requirements of SARA and ways you can help protect and preserve bat populations. Below you will find links to factsheets, maps, species profiles and other documents.
