August 18, 2022 over 18 people from TWRA, TVA, US Army and TNC applied 68 MOTUS transmitters to emerging gray bats.
In this photo Mallory Tate from the TWRA trims hair off of a captured gray bat to glue a tiny transmitter to the animal.
Bellamy Cave was purchased by TNC in 2006 as gray bat habitat and turned over to the state of Tennessee for management. The gray bat population of Bellamy has more than doubled in the winter time since the 2006 purchase and increased almost 10 fold.
