Behind the Scenes

Educational exhibits featuring bats are becoming extremely popular. Assisting museums in the development of such exhibits is one of many ways that Bat Conservation International is involved in conservation education. The success of bat conservation efforts depends a great deal on how people perceive bats, and BCI therefore places a major emphasis on this kind of education. Bat photographs and the accompanying information provided by BCI have gone a long way in helping visitors understand that bats are not the fearsome creatures of popular misconception and that they are essential to healthy environments worldwide. The Children's Museum, the Milwaukee Public Museum, and the Smithsonian Institution all depended upon BCI for photographs and information about bats for their exhibits.
