An innovative full-colour work about bats' biology, habits, and history, and the bat conservation efforts of young people around the world, now also available in paperback!
From the award-winning author Rob Laidlaw comes an inspiring book about bats, their importance to a wide range of ecosystems, and the young bat citizens who are engaged in conservation efforts around the world.
In Bat Citizens: Defending the Ninjas of the Night, celebrated animal activist and biologist Rob Laidlaw sheds light on these famously shadowy mammals, from their habits and habitats to their importance for maintaining biodiversity. Bat biology is explored alongside the history of human-bat relations, with facts to fascinate even the most nervous reader.
