BATS has come a long way since its first issue in 1983. With this volume comes a new look and additional pages. The expanded edition will better enable us to keep you up-to-date on bat conservation issues.
In this section, BCI Notes, we'll inform you about our progress and activities and let you know how you can help. From time to time we'll introduce you to other BCI members, researchers, and their activities through Profiles (see page 6 for the story about how 12-year old BCI member, Colin Kapelovitz, succeeded in getting Rozol use against bats banned in North Dakota). We also would like to encourage letters to the Editor in Letters. Sometimes the answers to the questions of one can help answer those of many, as well as providing a format for conservation reports or personal observation. New features will be added as BCI continues to grow.
Your comments and suggestions are welcome. Let us know what you would like to see in BATS or how we can better help you to become more actively involved in bat conservation.
