Occurrence of the Eastern Red Bat in NT has not been confirmed, but unconfirmed records from NNPR (Lausen and others 2014) and WBNP, Alberta (Lausen 2011; Reimer and others 2014) suggest that the Eastern Red Bat may occur in NT where suitable habitat can be found (such as relatively large deciduous trees for day roosting and open forest for foraging; Jung and others 1999; Hutchinson and Lacki 2000; Elmore and others 2005).
Male and non-reproductive female Little Brown Myotis are known to occasionally use karst caves in WBNP, Alberta, as summer day roosts; echolocation recordings suggest they do the same at the South Slave hibernaculum (Reimer and others 2014).
Little Brown Myotis have been observed hibernating in the NT south of Great Slave Lake and in WBNP, Alberta (Reimer 2013; Reimer and others 2014).
The major problem is many of these animals in and around the WBNP are infected with tuberculosis (TB), or bovine brucellosis.
Recent years with mild winters and low snow accumulations could aid a resident cougar population to persist in the southern NWT and WBNP. However it remains unknown whether the cougar sightings we documented represent transient or resident individuals.
Other management implications for cougars in the NWT and WBNP are currently limited.
Between 1950 and 1985, [approximately]18 680 [km.sup.2] of the 44 800 [km.sup.2] of Wood Buffalo National Park (WBNP) was burned by forest fires (Larsen and MacDonald 1995).
We also investigated another, nearby cave (Peace Point Cave) as a potential hibernaculum in the southern region of WBNP.
We studied bats in the Alberta portion of WBNP, mainly in the vicinity of Walk-in Cave, the largest cave currently known in the park (Figure 1).
We also investigated another known cave in WBNP (Peace Point Cave; near Peace Point, Fig.
Despite the possibility of another large anthrax outbreak, it was impossible to resurvey the Hook Lake area until 3 July, as all available aircraft were involved in fighting a large forest fire in WBNP. The surveillance flight on 3 July observed only five more carcasses, which were buried that same day along with the original carcass.
The minutes of a meeting of the Anthrax Response Committee, which took place on 29 August in Edmonton, reported that 62 carcasses had been located in the Grand Detour region, and another 24 had been discovered in the northeast corner of WBNP within the Park Central region.
