International Bat Appreciation Day

Dates:

April 17, 2021 8:00 am
Until April 17, 2021 5:00 pm

Each year on April 17th, International Bat Appreciation Day reminds us of the roles bats play in our daily lives.  April is also the best time of the year to observe bats, as they are now beginning to emerge from hibernation. The observance is an excellent time to learn about the role bats play in nature. Since bats are considered to be an “insectivorous” creature, they rid our world of many annoying insects. In one hour, a bat can eat up to 1,000 mosquitoes.
