Pilbara Regional Ghost Bat Project

Over the last three years, Biologic has been managing a regional Ghost Bat genetic project with BHP, Murdoch University, Queensland University and Parks and Wildlife Service (Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions). The project aims to establish the population structure, movement and connectivity of Ghost Bats throughout the Pilbara region using scat material and tissue samples. Using scat material, hormone levels are also tested to provide insight into the extent and use of maternity caves by pregnant and/ or lactating females.
