The proposed cut would fragment critical wildlife habitat and migration routes, could destroy an endangered Indiana Bat hibernaculum
, and would pose a serious threat to valuable wetlands.
From initially having four raised beds four years ago, the group has worked hard to expand the project and now has a variety of raised beds, a new wildlife pond, a poly-tunnel, a hibernaculum
and many other features around the school.
1986) Influence of hibernaculum
microenvironment on the winter life history of the garter snake (Thamnophis sirtalis).
Instead of filling in the hole, the farmer puts a fence around it, and saves the hibernaculum
, the snakes' winter home.
They probably can't sense temperature changes either -- scientists have taken temperature readings and found that the hibernaculum
doesn't seem to register large swings of hot and cold that would wake the ground squirrels up.
The mine is the biggest bat hibernaculum
in the state.
A mine that for ages served as New York's largest hibernaculum
used to host more than 200,000 bats.

During ongoing annual population surveys of caves and mines conducted by national nongovernmental organizations, hibernating bats with obvious fungal growth on their bodies (Figure 1, panel A) were opportunistically sampled in Germany, Switzerland, and Hungary; samples were also obtained from 2 dead bats from the same hibernaculum
in the United Kingdom.

At bud-break in early spring, first-instars leave the hibernaculum
and each mine a single leaf.
