Bats -- Conservation, Education & Rehabilitation

(this page updated November 21, 2005)

Bats are critical elements of healthy ecosystems...for seed dispersal, pollination, insect control and more. They are threatened by habitat loss, myth-mongering, misrepresentation in the media, vandalism and fear.  

Bats do not get in your hair and they are not blind! Children and adults have a lot of fun learning more about bats...and what you discover about bats will likely surprise and delight you.
