Dispelling Myths About Bats

Bats are one of the world’s most misunderstood species, yet they exist on every human-inhabited continent. There are so many myths tainting the image of these unique mammals. History has made them out to be scary creatures when in fact bats are important human allies, vital in the fight against pesky insects. In truth, the scariest thing about bats is this: they’re being decimated in Canada by a disease called White-nose Syndrome.

During this traditional Halloween season, the Canadian Wildlife Federation is sending out the bat signal, shining a light on myths about bats and the risks bats face while encouraging Canadians to help.

Here are four simple ways you can contribute to our efforts to help the bats!
