The Year of the Bat

"Together with Bats"

2011-2012 was been deemed The Year of the Bat. The United Nations Environment Programme has joined with various other world agencies to help celebrate the Bat. The only flying mammal in the world. 

Bats are mysterious and maligned but they are essential to the environment. They assist with night-time pollination, distribute seeds, and are aggressive in the area of insect control. 
Please join with us and help celebrate this denizen of the night. 


  1. I love bats. That reminds me that I want to put a bat house up this year! Thanks for the great post.


  2. Indeed! Bats are ALWAYS beautiful!
