What We Do/Imperiled Species

How You Can Help


  • Report congregations of bats in caves and mines to Bat Conservation International or your local wildlife organization. Remember: NEVER enter abandoned mines! They are extremely dangerous.

  • Contact your local state and federal wildlife agency personnel and share your concern for bats and support for BCI and our Imperiled Species Program. Promoting public agency actions and electing officials who share our environmental concerns is another way to support the efforts of wildlife and wildlife habitat conservation.

  • Provide people/organizations/schools with educational materials that combat the often-negative view of bats held by many people. Excellent educational materials are available through this website – and schools benefit by developing libraries of bat-related materials donated by people who support bats. Kids love bats!

  • Volunteer. Many of our programs can use volunteer help. The Indiana Myotis Program is coordinated and based out of central Kentucky, and we can often utilize volunteers for projects across the range of the Indiana myotis. Become a volunteer here.

  • Become a Bat Conservation International Member – and giving BCI memberships as gifts to relatives, colleagues, children, and strangers – is an excellent way to support BCI’s efforts to benefit bats and their habitats worldwide. Become a member here.

  • Every donation counts! Much of our conservation work is made possible by your donations of money and equipment. Even small donations can make a huge difference in the success of a project. Federal and state funds for bat conservation often require that government dollars are matched by private funds. Donate to the Imperiled Species Program and other vital bat conservation projects.
