Presented by Leah Wells-Borer

All events are tentatively scheduled and may change. Please refer to the CMCL Online Events Calendar, the CMCL website, or follow us on social media for any and all updates.


Registration opens 9/8 at 9am.

The talk covers a general overview of bats (what they are, how they work, how diverse they are), a look at the bats we have here in NJ, how bats can be beneficial to humans, myths and misconceptions about bats, threats to bats, and what we can do to help combat those threats.  Ethan's hope with this talk is to show attendees that bats are our friends (not something to fear). 


About Leah Wells-Borer, wildlife biologist

Leah works on our bat research and conservation projects. As the coordinator of one of our projects - The Summer Bat Count, she is responsible for engaging our citizen science volunteers to conduct bat counts at sites where bats are known to be roosting. She also works on our other bat-related projects such as mist-netting and radio tracking, Bats in Buildings, and mobile acoustic surveys. Leah earned her B.S. in Ecology, Evolution, and Natural Resources from Rutgers University. Leah enjoys spending time outdoors by going on hikes, birding, kayaking, and taking her cats on harnessed adventures!


About Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey

New Jersey has a rich biodiversity that belies its small size and urban reputation. In every corner of our state, species of wildlife, considered rare and imperiled enough to be protected by state or federal law, are woven in to the tapestry of life in our state.

Rare wildlife species live, much like New Jersey residents, in the mountains of the north, the pastoral farmlands of central New Jersey, the bays and swamps along our coasts, as well as on skyscrapers, bridges, and at the edges of suburban subdivisions. These species live a challenged life where roads represent impenetrable obstacles, developments spell the demise of habitat, and contamination in wetlands can wipe out an entire generation.

It is our duty, and our privilege, to protect these species. We gather the best science-tried and true conservation techniques, innovative education activities, and an engaged corps of willing volunteers, in pursuit of the right combination of activities that will preserve a species before it disappears from our state; help another population recover or; highlight some bird, fish, mammal or insect that must be protected before it slides towards extinction.

Our mission is to preserve rare and imperiled species of wildlife that live and breed in, and migrate through New Jersey.

We do this by:

• Carrying out research on species, populations and natural communities.
• Implementing conservation plans on species or populations to stall declines and start recovery.
• Restoring habitat so that it can be as productive as possible for wildlife and other natural communities.
• Educating everyone who lives in New Jersey about our shared wild heritage and our shared responsibility to protect it.
• Engaging partners to make us effective and efficient in the use of our resources.
• Developing a committed corps of volunteers connected to our state’s wonderful biodiversity and working hard to protect it.

CWF VISION:
We are looking, and working, towards a future where New Jersey is home to greater numbers of rare species, stronger populations and enough good habitat to support them
