The Canadian Cooperative Wildlife Health Centre, in collaboration with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, is carrying out surveillance to determine the spread of White-nose Syndrome in the province.
In addition to localities in regions where WNS was identified in 2010, about 12 additional hibernacula are being monitored in northern and north-western Ontario, from north of Georgian Bay to Kenora, in anticipation of its possible spread.
The public is encouraged to report unusual bat sightings anywhere in Ontario to our hotline.
If you have witnessed abnormal bat activity, such as day-flying, or have found dead or dying
bats, please contact CCWHC toll-free at
