The NABat program provides tools to explore and submit acoustic and colony count data. NABat collects data on a continental scale using standardized and vetted protocols. 

Get Involved

Once you have established a NABat project, use the cell selection tool to claim a cell for acoustic monitoring.  Add "Southwest Hub" as a collaborating organization and share your plans with us.

The Southwest Bat Hub is managed by Bat Conservation International in collaboration with the NABat Coordinating Office, US Fish & Wildlife Service, Arizona Game and Fish Department, and the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish.
