teded: What flies through the night, silently…


What flies through the night, silently guarding and protecting our world from evil? Batman? Try…a bat. Like Batman, bats are widely misunderstood and vilified. Not only do bats eat pesky insects like mosquitoes and crop pests, they disperse seeds and pollinate plants, and have even inspired the design for robotic airplanes. Help dispel the myth that bats are dangerous villains and spread the word why they, instead, deserve a hero’s welcome – and our protection.
