Bats play a vital role in ecosystems. Many bat species eat insects, including mosquitoes and crop-eating insects, and act as natural pest control. Unfortunately, many bat species in the U.S. are endangered, and all are threatened with habitat loss and the fatal, fast-spreading white nose syndrome, which is killing bats by the thousands.
Your adoption provides vital support for our work to educate Congress about white nose syndrome and request action to address it. It also supports our efforts to protect important bat habitat, and to educate the public on the importance of bats.
All donations support our work to protect and restore the wildlife and wild places you care about.
Named "America's Best Wildlife Charity" by Reader's Digest, Defenders of Wildlife has been a leading innovator in developing the most effective ways to conserve imperiled wildlife and wild lands for over 65 years. Your adoption donation will immediately be put to use where it is most needed to achieve these goals.
