Going Batty

Be part of Bat Conservation with the Cochrane Ecological Institute (CEI), as we research, educate and take action to help bats. Let us dispel the myths about bats, explore their role in the ecosystem, and learn what we can do to help them. Then, go on a field trip to a local waterway to learn how and where they live. Let CEI take you into the fascinating world of bats and explore ways to reduce their losses that will aid in their recovery.
