2018 Pallid Bat: Final Report report

The Living Coast Discovery Center, in partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Cabrillo National Monument, and the San Diego Natural History Museum conducted surveys to determine bat species composition on and around the Sweetwater Marsh Unit of the San Diego Bay National Wildlife Refuge. Strong historical research suggested that the pallid bat was likely utilizing Sweetwater Marsh for foraging and roosting at this time. The primary goals of this project were to establish permanent survey locations within Sweetwater Marsh, to contribute to the data collection in regional bat studies, and to establish a site-specific bat habitat threat reduction and management plan based on the survey results.

2018 DRAFT Final report for focused pallid bat (Antrozous pallidus) and Townsend’s big-eared bat (Corynorhinus townsendii) surveys in San Diego County, California report

Very little information exists on the status or distribution of either species, particularly in the North County MSCP area. Therefore, San Diego County-wide surveys for these species were needed to document where they were found and what their current population status was. Obtaining this information would allow for more informed consideration of the conservation planning and management of these species in the North County plan. This would also allow habitat models to be developed for the target species to aid in future planning.
