Bats wanted!

Do you have bats roosting in a building on your property? If the answer is yes, and you live in the Saskatoon area, a team of U of S researchers are looking for volunteers.

As part of ongoing research into the relationship between bats and their viruses, researchers in the Bat Zoonoses Lab are looking for access to colonies of bats over the course of the summer, May-September 2019. If you own a property that bats are using as a roost, and would be willing to let researchers have access to the grounds and infrastructure, please contact us at or call (306) 966-7048. No bats will be harmed during the collection of samples, and all procedures have been approved by Animal Research Ethics Board (ANI 20170052).
