The Problem

Bats are an important part of the world’s ecosystem, but they are in danger from both massive losses to White Nose Syndrome fungus and human interference. This program is meant to educate the public about bats (the fears and misconceptions surrounding them and the vital environmental benefits they provide us) and to motivate the public to join the bat’s cause before they are gone forever.

Our Plan

Through Bat Booths at street fairs and festivals, talks at community events; schools, libraries, group meetings and Buddies for Bats Facebook page, we will educate the public about the critical importance of bats to the environment. We will help people learn more about bats to diminish fear of them and to dispel false myths.
