When tens of thousands of bats emerge at sunset or are seen tightly packed along the walls of a cave, their sheer numbers can leave an impression that bat conservation isn't particularly critical. We must remember that the bats we see in such great numbers are usually the "Lucky Bats" that enjoy some measure of protection at a specific site. They may be terribly vulnerable at other roosts or along migratory routes. And they may, in fact, be so crowded because other roosting options have been lost and this is all they have left.
