Nevada Bat Conservation Plan

The Nevada Bat Working Group (NBWG), a subcommittee of the Western Bat Working Group (WBWG) is an assemblage of wildlife scientists dedicated to the preservation, protection, management and restoration of Nevada’s bat fauna. In 1998, the NBWG dedicated itself to the production of a comprehensive conservation plan for Nevada’s 23 bat species. This final revision of the 2002 initial plan assesses the current state of bat conservation in Nevada and suggests proactive strategies for improving and standardizing the conservation of Nevada’s bats. This document is designed to guide and educate public and private land managers in the conservation of Nevada’s bats into the next decade.
