Bats squeak into Arenac libraries for summer program

Posted

Audiences at libraries in Au Gres, Omer and Standish got to meet some bats from around the world July 10 and 11 when the Organization for Bat Conservation held its program, “Life Beneath the Surface.” Christina Funk, presenter from the OBC, or Bat Zone, brought along four different species of bats to the libraries, and spoke about their lifestyles and habitats. She also talked about the existential dangers some bat species face from the fungus that causes white-nose syndrome, and the benefits and ecological importance of the oft-misunderstood creatures.
