Benefits of Bats:
There are over 1,300 species of bats in the world,
and each helps us by…
Controlling insects. Each night, one bat eats
thousands of insects like moths, flies and mosquitoes.
This saves U.S. farmers over $1 billion annually.
Spreading pollen and seeds that help over 750 plants
thrive, including bananas, avocados, agave, pineapples,
figs, and mangoes.
Informing the development of new medicines,
including anti-coagulants and anti-fungals.
Inspiring innovations in sonar, flight, and navigation.
