The Natural Heritage of Endangered Species Program tracks Northern Long Eared Bats (NLEB) and has created a map of their habitat locations for the State, two of which are in Wellesley: Babson College and Wellesley Country Club. Due to severe population declines caused by White Nose Syndrome (WNS), the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service listed the Long Eared Bat as a Threatened Species under the Endangered Species Act (ESA, 50CFR 17.11) on April 2, 2015. NLEB is also listed as Endangered under the Massachusetts Endangered Species Act (MESA, M.G.L. c.131A).
