Welcome to the SBDN's home in the Web. The mission of the Southeastern Bat Diversity Network is to conserve bats and their habitats in the southeastern United States by facilitating education, research, and management.


The annual Bat Blitz is one of our most successful programs. This event brings together biologists and land managers to gather important information on the bat fauna of a selected area. Learn more: Bat Blitz Information and FAQs.
