Stay Out & Stay Alive! NEVER enter abandoned mines as they are extremely dangerous! In addition to the human tragedy, deaths or injuries increase pressure to close large numbers of mines in short periods of time. In such circumstances, appropriate bat assessments may not be conducted before some mines are permanently closed, potentially entombing bats inside.
Encourage your state and federal management organizations to protect mine habitats for bats.
Every donation counts! Our projects often are possible only with timely donations of money and equipment. Even small donations can make a huge difference in the success of a project. BCI staff and partners need support to replace critical safety and project equipment and supplies as they wear out. Specifically, we have continuing needs for safety equipment (11mm static ropes, double and single sheave pulleys, gas detectors).
