The US Fish & Wildlife Service has proposed that the northern long-eared bat (Myotis septentrionalis) be listed as endangered. On October 2, 2013, their recommendation for listing the northern long-eared bat as endangered throughout its range under the Endangered Species Act was published in the Federal Register. More recently, the USFWS published a planning document, Northern Long-Eared Bat Interim Conference and Planning Guidance (January 6, 2014). The guidance document addresses immediate information needs for section 7 conferences and conservation planning. It includes a comparison of the northern long-eared and Indian bats; as well as interim presence/absence survey technique.
