Who is the only flying mammal that uses sonar technology similar to a submarine, eats 1000 mosquitoes in one hour, and whose cousins help to plant and pollinate the Tropical Rainforest? Maine’s big brown bat! There are over 1500 species of bats in the world, each helping to balance the ecosystem where they live.
Learn about these gentle creatures and discover their natural history, importance to the ecosystem and planet, current challenges, and tangible actions that we can take to protect these allies in the night.
This program is appropriate for all ages; families are welcome!
