It’s a bird, it’s a plane – no, it’s a bat! You may not realize just how important bats are but they provide vital services for us and our many different environments. From pollinating to pest-control, renewal to reforestation, bats save our world one ecosystem at a time. Join Bat Conservation International as we celebration of these unsung heroes at Museum of American Wildlife Art.
