Northern Long-eared Bat
In Alberta, the Northern Long-eared Bat is most often reported in the
Boreal Forest Natural Region, and the northern section of the
Foothills Natural Region. The largest number of captures has occurred at Cadomin Cave. There
are also limited records from the Peace Parkland subregion and from the northern regions of the Central Parkland.
This would suggest that the range of the Northern Long-eared Bat is continuous across Alberta, north of Cold Lake, Edmonton, and Jasper.
Overall, the known range of the Northern Long-eared Bat is primarily restricted to forested regions,
and distinctly avoids areas such as the wide-open prairies, coastal rainforests, and southern Rockies.
