Just saw your post, Ben - here's something from "bat rescue": Bats need streams, forests, fields, marshes and chaparral to forage for insects or nectar, and to find safe roosts to raise their pups. As one biologist told us, "All the bat houses in the world won't help bats if they don't have any natural habitat left in which they can hunt insects." And that means fewer pesticides so there are insects. And letting people know that bats are necessary and harmless.

A healthy ecology requires diversity - predators & prey, animals and insects and plants - they all work together. If part of this equation is damaged the rest begins to fall apart! We see this all around us - so why does the lesson not sink in? Signed and noted!

Signed. I saw a wonderful program the other night about bats in Austin, Texas. They like to get between the cracks on the undersides of the highway. There's' also a park down there which I hope isn't open to the public but the cave in this park houses 20 to 30 million of them. So far they haven't gotten the white nose syndrome of which I've seen close up.
They need protecting at all cost. You can buy bat houses for them. Go online and check it out.

I think that people here are being fooled that they are "signing" an actual petition. I did (reluctantly) take the pledge but left the following comment which explains the problem with pledges:

"It is necessary to protect bats and their habitats. However, a pledge is useless. The only people that are going to see this are existing ecological and animal protection activists. It would have made much more sense to launch one or more petitions. I never take those stupid pledges on "Causes" because I have experience that Facebook "friends" pledge to "sign" a petition, but then when I check the petition, it turns out that they have not "signed","

(This comment should not be taken as negative criticism but as a request to those who organize online campaigns to make them into effective activism).

For every action there is a reaction. According to the law of karma, if we cause pain and suffering to other living beings, we must endure pain and suffering in return, both individually and collectively. We reap what we sow, in this life and the next, for nature has her own justice. No one can escape the law of karma.

Signed, thanks for the article. Here in the United Kingdom Bats are protected, hefty fine or prison if anyone harms one or disturbs where they are nesting, are they not protected anywhere else? I run a green renewables company, Your Home Energy Solutions, and we won't insulate a loft if there are Bats nesting. Like us on Facebook. We will spread the word, thanks

I am frequently and affectionately called an "Daft Old bat" this is perfectly acceptable in Yorkshire England.
Lol. You ust clip the speaker round the ear and laugh. It really is a sign of affection!!!
Bats are beautiful. they cling together and work together and they are so well adapted.
I used to watch the Bats coming out of their cave in the crags in two countries Spain and England. They are wonderful aerial acrobats and so well adapted. Sonar Yes I could do with this as I have bad eyesight!
I love em.
