I had just read an e-mail from a bat conservation group about this. A good friend was a rehabber who specialized in rehabbing bats.. she changed how I view bats forever. People need to wake up and realize what a buggy world it will be without bats..how some things won't get pollinated...people have no idea...

ramblingwoods- you are absolutely correct. If only people knew of the amount of just mosquitoes that bats eat their attitudes would change.
