Bat Conservation International was originally founded to counter misinformation about bats. They have done an excellent job of education in the U.S. and around the world, saving unknown numbers of bats. Now, THE BATS REALLY NEED OUR HELP. There is a mysterious plague affecting bat colonies which is wiping them out at an alarming rate. Millions have died. The effect of no bats will be disaster for agriculture. Bats eat lierally tons of agricultural pests. With no bats, farmers will be using way more toxic pesticides instead, harming the environment even more. Bats are also important pollinators. Less bats = more pesticides = harm to beneficial organisms including bees (which also pollinate our crops). A vicious cycle which will have a very bad effect on our agricultural production and our environment--which ultimately affects us all.
