''It was like passing a boundary to dive / Into the sun-filled water, brightly leafed / And limbed and lighted out from bank to bank. / That's how the stars shine during the day.'' -- Wallace Stevens

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service proposes to list the northern long-eared bat as endangered under the Endangered Species Act.  The Service also determined that the eastern small-footed bat does not warrant listing.

The northern long-eared bat is found across much of the eastern and north central United States, and all Canadian provinces from the Atlantic Ocean west to the southern Yukon Territory and eastern British Columbia.

Palmetto Pro Birders 2012

2 New Modules Added - Registration Now Open!

The goal of the Palmetto Pro Birder Program is to expose motivated citizens to the diversity of avifauna in the Palmetto State and, by that exposure, build an understanding of the importance of conserving native habitats to maintain or restore the state's avian diversity. We envision building a core of SCWF Citizen Scientists who are equipped with field ornithology skills to be competent in identifying birds by sight, sound and behavior in the field. These citizen scientists will be ambassadors for conservation and potential members and allies of SCWF and its long-standing agenda to conserve the state's wildlife, habitats and conservation heritage.
