Presence/Absence Survey for Indiana and Northern Long-Eared Bats, Memphis-Shelby County Airport Authority

Permitted biologists at GES, in coordination with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Federal Aviation Administration, performed a presence/absence survey utilizing double-high mist nets to survey for the federally endangered Indiana bat (Myotis sodalis) and federally threatened northern long-eared bat (Myotis septentrionalis).

Tasks included the set-up and tear down of equipment, as well as monitoring of mist nets and recording of data associated with each capture. A total of 19 bats were captured: 16 eastern red bats (Lasiurus borealis), 2 tri-colored bat (Perimyotis subflavus), and 1 evening bat (Nycticeius humeralis). No Indiana or northern long-ear bats were captured. Therefore, a not likely to affect determination was made and clearance was obtained from U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to perform the needed maintenance.
