Mexican Freetail Bats - Migration: There are many animal species in the United States that practice the habit of migration. Migration takes place when an animal species travels a long distance to another location because it cannot tolerate the climate change in its home location. Climate change – usually the changing of warmer to colder weather – is the primary reason for migration. However there are other reasons an animal species may migrate. Lack of suitable food might cause an animal group to migrate to another area where food is more abundant, or they may migrate during a particular season of the year due to mating practices.

The Mexican free-tail bat is a migratory species. It very often leaves its home in the southern United States to pursue warmer climates further south. The animal does not adapt very well to cold weather, and must locate a climate where conditions are warm. Migration for the Mexican free-tail bat occurs in October and November every year. After spending several months there, they return to their home location around March and April. Where they go during this migration is still not known (it is speculated that they travel to Mexico or even Central America), although it is of great interest to those who build and develop conservation plans.

The bats are protected under conservation laws while they are local for the summer – especially in national parks where the bats are natives – such as Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico. But when the bats migrate to another location, and conservationists are not aware of where the bats have traveled to, they can no longer be covered under the protection of local conservation benefits. Therefore to have information on where the bats travel to in the winter would be valuable information for conservation efforts. There have been studies conducted to determine migratory locations, and there are a lot of theories, but no real definitive answer.
