Report Sick, unusually behaving or dead bats

FWC is interested in finding out more about the health of bats in Florida. Please help us monitor bat populations in Florida for possible cases of White Nose Syndrome (WNS). Although WNS is not known to be in Florida, FWC is interested in any hearing reports about sick and dying bats.

Anyone in Florida who finds bats that appear sick, or are acting in an unusual manner, should report that information by calling FWC's Wildlife Alert phone number (1-888-404-FWCC [3922]) or using the form below.

 







FWC Facts:
Divers must make reasonable efforts to stay within 300 feet of a divers-down flag on open waters and within 100 feet of a flag within rivers, inlets or navigation channels.
