Thank you for considering helping Bat Conservation International protect the world's
bats and the habitats that depend on them. We currently have the following needs:
Bat Conservation International is organizing and promoting bat-related events across the country and around the globe for International Year of the Bat. Our efforts have been so successful that we are receiving scores of requests for speakers wanted at many types of institutions, from scout troops to famous zoos. To help meet this need we are creating a Speakers Bureau, for this year and beyond. If you have great knowledge about bats, skills in educational public speaking, and a desire to share your appreciation of bats, please give details in the “Additional Remarks” box below.
