Abstract: Hawaiian hoary bats, or ʻŌpeʻapeʻa, are the only true native terrestrial mammals in Hawaiʻi and can be found across the archipelago. This endangered species is solitary, insectivorous, and roosts in foliage; making it difficult to determine population sizes and habitat needs for effective conservation. Join Hawaii Cooperative Studies Unit (HCSU) researcher Corinna Pinzari as she shares how collaborative research by USGS-PIERC and HCSU is leading us to new discoveries about the life history, ecology, and behavior of our elusive ʻŌpeʻapeʻa. She will talk about current projects in support of bat conservation and management efforts, and how scientists use innovate techniques to study this cryptic species.
