BCI Photo Collection

Coming Soon!

Bat Conservation International has a very large collection of bat photographs, thousands of quality images of bat species from every continent but Antarctica. The right to use these copyrighted images may be purchased from BCI, and proceeds support bat conservation.

BCI photos have been published in the National Geographic, Smithsonian, Audubon and Time magazines and countless other magazines, newspapers, books, videos and websites. Most images in the collection were taken by BCI Founder Merlin D. Tuttle, a biologist and award-winning nature photographer.

We have photos of every North American bat species and of species from Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, South America and Pacific Islands. These images include portraits and bats in a broad range of natural settings, roosting, flying, hunting, feeding, drinking, nursing and just about anything else that bats do. The collection also includes many bat-conservation photos of working scientists, bat houses, mine gates, etc.

Many images from this remarkable collection will soon be available for viewing in our new online photo gallery.

BCI relies on the support of our amazing members around the world.

Our mission is to conserve the world’s bats and their ecosystems to ensure a healthy planet.

Please join us or donate so our work can continue.
