- Estimating Little Brown Bat (Myotis Lucifugus) Colony Size in Southern Yukon: A Mark-Recapture Approach
The little brown bat is currently assessed as Endangered by COSEWIC (Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada). The main threat to these bats is the alien and invasive disease white nose syndrome, which is responsible for the collapse of populations in northeastern North America. Bats are also considered important indicators of ecosystem health. As such, monitoring Yukon populations of bats is of management interest.

Little Brown Bats (Myotis lucifugus) are currently assessed in Canada as an Endangered species.
