Review for Bat Conservation International, Inc., Austin, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Most people think it's strange to champion bats, but Bat Conservation International is helping combat that. This wonderful organization has helped me educate many friends and family members, who, like so many, believe all the terrible myths about bats. When BCI first started, they chose Austin, TX, as their base of operations because a colony of bats was roosting under the Congress Avenue Bridge, and people, reacting from fear, were killing the bats. Rather than approach this with hand-wringing woe, BCI instead took an educational approach. And now the Congress Ave. colony is a tourist attraction! If only all organizations could be so effective. They are also wonderful about responding to members, and I've received several personal emails from the president and others. Bat Conservation has my continued support in all that they do.
