Bats Under Attack: Threats to the Wisconsin Bat Population Christopher Yahnke – Professor of Biology March 12 6:30 p.m. Waupaca Public Library Christopher Yahnke is a Professor of Biology at UW-Stevens Point, in his 17th year in the Department of Biology. Wisconsin is home to eight species of bats, all of them insect eaters. Some migrate hundreds of miles south for the winter while others hibernate locally, within a hundred miles of their summer feeding area. Each of these bats faces unique perils during this period when we enjoy the lack of insects. In addition to the bats of Wisconsin, he will share research on acoustic monitoring of bats and relate how the public can help our bats through citizen science initiatives.
