    THOUGHTS  TO  THINK

    EVERYTHING IN NATURE HAS A PURPOSE ..
    NO MATTER HOW ODD IT APPEARS OR HOW STRANGE IT BEHAVES ..
    THERE IS A DEFINED PURPOSE ..
    WE MAY NOT UNDERSTAND IT ALL ..
    BUT HOW OFTEN DO WE UNDERSTAND THE BEHAVIORS OF THOSE AROUND US  ?
    IN OUR RATIONALISTIC SOCIETY ..
    IT BECOMES DIFFICULT NOT TO QUESTION THE VALUE OF A PARTICULAR PLANT OR ANIMAL
    AND THEIR INTERRELATIONSHIPS
    WE NEED TO ASK OURSELVES WHETHER WE NEED TO JUSTIFY
    THE EXISTENCE OF A PLANT OR ANIMAL ANY MORE THAN THE EXISTENCE OF HUMANS

    TED ANDREWS

    HOW  YOU  CAN  HELP  ALL  SPECIES  OF  BAT

    LEARN TO BE CONSIDERATE OF THE NEEDS OF ANIMALS

    if a bat gets in your house .. DO NOT SCREAM  !!!   INSTEAD .. IMMEDIATELY OPEN A WINDOW OR DOOR ..
    remember - the bat will be echolocating to try and find a way out ..  THE BAT ONLY WANTS TO GET OUT !!!
    when you open the door or window .. THE BAT WILL ACTUALLY "HEAR" EXACTLY WHERE THE OPENING IS
    then .. the bat will fly right out .. HOORAY !!!

    join the organization BAT CONSERVATION INTERNATIONAL  www.batcon.org

    PUT UP A BAT HOUSE IN YOUR YARD .. you can build one or buy one already made
    you can get plans or buy an already built house from BAT CONSERVATION INTERNATIONAL

    write a letter to the mayor of your town to ask the town to put up bat houses ..
    on community lands .. schools .. public land

    IF BATS ARE LIVING IN YOUR HOUSE .. YOU NEED TO GET THEM OUT BUT NOT HURT THEM !!
    EXCLUSION IS THE ONLY ANSWER
    ( but you can only do this in the middle of the summer when their babies are already weaned )
    WATCH AT SUNSET TO DETERMINE WHERE THEY ARE ENTERING AND EXITING FROM YOUR HOUSE
    THEN .. HANG A RECTANGLE PIECE OF NETTING .. LIKE A CURTAIN ..
    ATTACH ACROSS TOP AREA OF ENTRANCE AND 2/3 OF THE WAY DOWN THE SIDES ..
    LEAVING THE BOTTOM AND 1/3 OF EACH SIDE NOT ATTACHED
    THIS WAY ANY BATS STILL INSIDE CAN GET OUT .. BUT NOT BACK IN

    communities around the world need to protect and restore and improve existing winter hibernation sites
    cover entrances with grates so bats can get in and out BUT HUMANS CANNOT  ! ! !
    improve air flow .. in caves .. abandoned tunnels .. abandoned World War II bunkers

    communities need to create habitat for bats ..
    dig into cliff walls ..
    build concrete stuctures like tubes .. with grates over entrances

    HUMANS NEED TO STAY OUT OF CAVES
    sometimes humans explore caves
    bats hibernating only have enough stored food for winter sleep ..
    if they are woken up .. they will use up valuable energy .. it can cause them to die !!!
    if bats have babies inside cave .. humans can scare moms away  .. and cause babies to die !!!
    STAY OUT OF CAVES !!!!

    CAP YOUR CHIMNEY WITH A SPECIAL SCREEN CAP ..  SO SMALL ANIMALS CANNOT FALL IN  !!

    LEARN EVERYTHING YOU CAN ABOUT BAT SPECIES ALL OVER THE WORLD
    KNOWLEDGE LEADS TO UNDERSTANDING
    AND ..
    HUMANS REALLY REALLY REALLY NEED TO UNDERSTAND BATS !!!

    FIND OUT WHAT SPECIES OF BAT LIVE NEAR YOU AND FIND OUT WHAT THEIR STATUS IS
    AND THEN ..
    FIND OUT WHAT YOUR LOCAL COMMUNITY IS DOING TO HELP THEM !

    create a garden for bats in your yard .. or at your school
    plant flowers that bloom at night .. with strong scents
    jasmine . honeysuckle . moonflower  ..  THESE ATTRACT INSECTS .. WHICH BATS NEED FOR FOOD !!!  

PRAY TO GOD AND THANK HIM FOR THE AMAZING SPOTTED BAT  !
 

    HOW YOU CAN HELP ALL ANIMALS

    PLEASE DO NOT EVER LITTER  !!  

    RECYCLE EVERYTHING THAT YOU CAN  ! ! !
    BY RECYCLING YOUR HOUSEHOLD WASTE ..
    YOU CAN HELP TO AVOID THE PRODUCTION OF CARBON DIOXIDE

    WHEN YOU RECYCLE GLASS PLASTIC METAL FOOD CONTAINERS ..
    RINSE THEM OUT THOROUGHLY WITH SOAPY WATER ..
    THAT WAY NO ANIMALS OF ANY KIND WILL BE ATTRACTED TO FOOD REMNANTS INSIDE THEM ..
    AND THAT WAY NO ANIMALS WILL BE HURT BY THE CONTAINERS   !!

    THINK ABOUT MAKING A GARDEN FOR WILDLIFE .. PLANTS .. WATER .. PLACES FOR SHELTER
    EVEN POTS OF FLOWERS OR HERBS ON A BALCONY HELP WILDLIFE  !

    LEARN EVERYTHING THAT YOU CAN ABOUT ALL ANIMALS
    REMEMBER ..
    KNOWLEDGE IS POWER !!
    THE ONLY THING THAT EVER REALLY CHANGES THE WORLD ARE IDEAS !!!

    THROW ONLY BIRDSEED AT WEDDINGS .. NOT RICE ..
    UNCOOKED RICE WILL KILL BIRDS BY SWELLING UP INSIDE THEIR BODIES  

    USE CLOTH GROCERY BAGS THAT YOU BRING FROM HOME
    SO YOU WON'T NEED PLASTIC GROCERY BAGS  ( plastic bags are really dangerous for animals )
