Today kicks off what is arguably the best week of the year, bat week. This week’s mission is to foster knowledge of bats and the ways in which they enrich the natural world around us. Ray and I have dedicated much of our research and film time to bats. This dedication, of course is second nature for anyone who loves bats as much as we do.
Bat week couldn’t have come at a better time. Halloween, my favorite holiday, is coming up at the end of the week. We will be spending Halloween night blowing up our social media and posting to our blog, animals that form the basis for many illogical fears. Bats will be among those featured. Each post will give insight into the benefits of these feared creatures and hopefully change opinions about these animals.
Starting at sundown on Halloween night be on the look out for spiders, insects, owls, bats and more as we dispel myths and shine the spotlight on these misunderstood but amazing animals.
Until Halloween night, head on over to Bat Conservation International to grab some bat tattoos for the kids and of course some bat brew for the adults.
It’s bat week, do your part!
