FPL Energy Announces Bat Conservation Initiative
January 23, 2006

-- Dr. William Caire of the University of Central Oklahoma's Selman Living Laboratory will design and install bat-friendly gates in a hibernaculum supporting more than 70,000 Myotis velifer -- Oklahoma's largest winter population of this species. A temporary gate approximating typical design parameters will be erected and evaluated for effects to bats, before a permanent gate is installed. This project will be implemented over two summers, beginning in 2006, and will involve several teachers and students from a local high school and the University of Central Oklahoma.
