Underground Wonders: The Importance of Caves and Karst in Bat Conservation

September 22, 2021

12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Location: Online

In this webinar, bat experts and advocates will take the audience deep into some of these other-worldly landscapes and discuss why caves and karst formations must be protected. The panel will highlight the most pressing threats that bats face and explain how anyone can help make a bat-friendly community, above and below the ground, during this year’s Bat Week (October 24-31) and beyond.

What you’ll learn:

  • Why wildlife, including bats, depend on subterranean habitats for survival, and how cave ecosystems benefit humans (such as providing water)
  • How to protect bat caves and how to enhance bat habitat above the ground, whether in a backyard, corporate landscape or community park
