man with batThe Incredible World of Bats — Why We Need Them
Thursday, November 15, 2018

Dr. Merlin Tuttle Founder and Executive Director of  Merlin Tuttle’s Bat Conservation and Research Fellow, Department of Integrated Biology, University of Texas at Austin

Bats comprise a fifth of all mammals. They come in an incredible variety, as cute as any panda or as strange as any dinosaur, from tiny bats that live in beetle holes in bamboo to giant flying foxes with six-foot wingspans. They’re found nearly everywhere, are primary seed dispersers from deserts to rainforests, pollinate some of the world’s most valuable crops, and save American farmers billions of dollars annually in avoided pesticide use.  They maintain long-term social relationships similar to those of humans, elephants, and dolphins, share information, and even adopt orphans.
