Project Goal

Save endangered bats through protection and education

Location: Mexico

"Patience and education are needed; we have to explain to donors the importance of investing in bat conservation."

Superior pollinators and insect predators, bats are, with a few exceptions, valuable assets to mankind. Yet these flying mammals are reviled and killed.

Rodrigo Medellín’s passionate advocacy for bats through conservation and education is dispelling harmful myths and bringing harmony between these mammals and their human neighbours.
