Dr. Loren Ammerman of the biology faculty was awarded a $26,998 grant sub-award by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to participate in a two-year research project dedicated to protecting an endangered bat species native to Southwest Texas.
Ammerman’s sub-award is part of a larger $87,000 grant to Bat Conservation International from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service through the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. The grant will fund the two-year project titled “Binational Conservation of an Endangered Pollinator: Research, Protection and Recovery for the Mexican Long-Nosed Bat.”
