Join us as we learn about the various ways researchers study bats and how you can help. Bats are the second most diverse group of mammals, and the only ones capable of true flight. Bats face many threats. Some of which have been so detrimental that the species warrants protection under the Endangered Species Act. 

This lecture is included with museum membership or admission.
