Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – As the sun sets, the humidity lets up and temperatures drop, biologists from Fort Campbell Fish and Wildlife, Environmental Division, Directorate of Public Works, are just heading into work.

Their destination is Fort Campbell’s training area to do bat habitat assessments.

Anytime a tree larger than 3 inches in diameter is removed, an Endangered Species Act compliance survey must be completed.

There are two types of surveys, mist netting and Anabat. Mist nets are used by ornithologists and bat biologists to capture wild birds and bats for average counts and other projects. Anabat is an audio monitoring system that uses the ultrasonic echolocation calls of the bats for species identification and to monitor activity.
