Indianapolis bat conservation. (the Americas).

THANKS TO the decision of an Interagency Task Force, which included the Indianapolis Airport Authority and State Transportation Department, an endangered bat colony in Indiana will receive habitat protection as a result of planned expansion at the airport.

Bat colonies roost on and near airport land and road construction will encroach on woods they use. Plans include the restoration of forest needed for their survival. Airport Project Director John Kish said that the agreement was "good For the airport, good for central Indiana travellers, good for the environment and good for the bats. This ensures expansion will be done in a environmentally responsible way"
