Shrinking populations

Michel Delorme, from the Montréal Biodôme, and Jacques Jutras, from the Quebec Department of Natural Resources, Wildlife and Parks, joined efforts in summer 2000 to launch this huge project.

The main goal of the network is to study bats throughout Quebec to help protect the different species and their habitats.
