Georgia Bat Survey Guidance

When do I need to conduct a survey?

Survey requirements vary depending on the type of project and required permits. Projects within the potential range of the Indiana bat (Myotis sodalis), gray bat (Myotis grisescens) or the northern long-eared bat (Myotis septentrionalis) may require a survey. Potential range maps can be found below.

For questions regarding surveys for specific projects, please contact Laci Pattavina at the USFWS Georgia Ecological Services Office at laci_pattavina@fws.gov.
