A unique, long-term effort to study an Indiana bat maternity colony near the Indianapolis Airport

Learn about a 25 year effort to study the effects of development and mitigation efforts on a population of the federally endangered Indiana bat (Myotis sodalis) that has persisted in the midst of an urban matrix near the Indianapolis Airport. Proactive measures by the Indianapolis Airport Authority and US Fish and Wildlife Service resulted in this conservation success story, which is a testament to the effectiveness of the Endangered Species Act.
