Dr. Merlin Tuttle and his colleagues at Bat Conservation International aren'tnbsp;scared of bats. These bat crusaders are fascinated by them, with good reason.nbsp;Bats fly the night skies innbsp;nearly every part of thenbsp;world, but they are the least studied of all mammals. As the major predator of night-flying insects, bats eat manynbsp;pests. Unfortunately bats are facing many problems, including a terrifying new disease. White-nose Syndrome is infecting and killing millions of hibernating bats in North America. But Dr. Tuttle, with the help of his fellow bat scientists arenbsp;innbsp;the trenches--and caves--on the front line of the fight to save their beloved bats.
