A tribal community known as Longpfuru Yimchungru who lives near Mt.Saramati, on the Indo-Burma border practice bat harvesting as an annual ritual. This age old practice is followed only by a particular clan called Bomrr, and is claimed to be in practice for more than 400 years.
For an effective long term conservation of bats it is vital to know the major roosting sites of bats by monitoring the health of bat population. For non-congregating bat species an assessment will be made through capture and recapture method.
In order to preserve and conserve the bats across India, it is important to know their distribution, population density and habitats. These are some of the key basic information required to assess their status and need for protection, preservation and conservation in the long term.
Saving India’s bats are critical to maintain our eco-system. Driving effective conservation and research projects require huge resources.
