A world without bats would be a world without chocolate, tequila, and tropical fruits like bananas, mangoes, guavas, and avocados. It would be an environment off-balance, full of nuisance insects like mosquitoes and numerous agricultural pests.
Bats are one of the most beneficial animals to humans but are also one of the most misunderstood and feared. Bats play key roles in the environment, eating bothersome insects, pollinating flowers, and dispersing seeds. Unfortunately, across the world, and here in the Garden State, bats continue to face many threats including habitat loss and disease such as white-nose syndrome. White-nose syndrome, alone, can kill 90-100% of bats in affected caves. Come and learn about the habits and habitats of these incredible mammals and their importance in the environment, and learn what you can do to help bats here in NJ.
