It’s a Winner!

BCI’s Bats magazine wins design award

BATS magazine summer edition front coverAlong with its new look and feel, we have been steadily expanding the scope of our quarterly Bats magazine to include a wealth of stories and images to better explore the fascinating diversity of bats around the world. Bats serves to connect our members, supporters and the broader community to the larger stories of bats and their far-reaching effects on conservation, public opinion, human health, research, habitat restoration, agriculture and the economy.

Thus far, two issues into the redesign, feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, and we are seeing more and more of our content and topics being picked up by other media outlets.

Others are noticing, too: Bats magazine is now a proud recipient of the 2015 Apex Award of Publication Excellence for Design & Layout. BCI hopes this accomplishment will further promote its mission of protecting the world’s bat population through education and research.
