Aboriginal Fund for Species at Risk (AFSAR)
The Native Council of Prince Edward Island (NCPEI), in partnership with the Canadian Wildlife Health Cooperative has been surveying property in the St. Chrysostome Wildlife Management Area for endangered Myotis. Many bats across PEI did not survive a recent outbreak of “white-nose syndrome.”
White-nose syndrome was first confirmed in PEI in 2013, and it is estimated that somewhere between 90 to 99 per cent of Little Brown Myotis and Northern Myotis have succumbed to this disease.
