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.

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.

You can’t be afraid of the dark or bothered by the smell of bat guano (poop) if you’re going to be a bat scientist. Follow Dr. Merlin Tuttle and his colleagues into bat caves as they try to learn enough about bats—which are an important part of our ecosystem--to prevent their extinction. Illus. with full-color photographs.
