Eight kids from across America are proving that you don’t need to be an adult to help our bats. These kids are members of the “Bat Squad!”, a group of young people who will be introduced to schools across North America in a four-part live webcast series to be launched online at BatWeek.org during the third annual Bat Week, held this year from October 24-31.
One major highlight of this year’s Bat Week event is “Bat Squad!” This series of four, 15-minute webcasts (airing 1pm ET from Tuesday 25th – Friday 28th of October at BatWeek.org) will dive into the efforts of eight young people to educate others on the benefits of bats, their habitats, the threats they face, and how they’re getting more people involved in conservation. Each video is also accompanied by a live Q&A session and educational materials for teachers and parents to continue the batty fun offline. The videos aim not only to teach, but also to inspire even more kids to get involved themselves.
These free online educational webcasts are a Bat Week initiative led by Bat Conservation International along partners from the U.S. Forest Service, National Geographic’s Animal Jam and the National Conservation Training Center, with major funding supplied by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
