Northern Long-eared Bat

Alberta Home

Northern Long-eared BatIn 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.
