Take a peek inside your kitchen pantry and what do you see? Maybe a delicious mango, strawberry, a chocolate bar, or other treats? Look a little farther and you might find something more exotic like papaya, agave syrup, avocados, or even tequila.
Did you realize that these, and many other foods we enjoy, are made possible by bats? Bats are farmer’s best friends. They help us obtain healthy foods by protecting crops from damaging insects, by pollinating important food crops, and spreading the seeds of trees such as fig, mango, bananas, and more! Learn more about bats and their value to agriculture by looking at our “Going to Bat for Bats Cookbook“.
