Bringing Back the Bats

Bringing Back the Bats

Bats are possibly the most misunderstood mammal on Earth. Shrouded in myth, mystery, and fear, bats certainly get a bad rap.

But the truth is that bats are not only essential to our ecosystems and the food chain, but they are extremely beneficial to humans. Fruit bats are responsible for pollination; insect eating bats remove millions of pesky mosquitoes from the air every night; and bats are directly and indirectly responsible for bringing us hundreds of everyday items we take for granted.

This section is designed to accompany our TV Series episode, Bringing Back the Bats, but you are free to use it with or without purchasing the DVD.
