Many factors have played a role in the reduction of global bat populations, from inappropriate bat guano mining to the spread of white nose syndrome and today awareness must be raised about what people can do to protect bats and their habitats. By integrating local bat colonies into local food systems and changing misconceptions about bats, bat populations and bat guano will remain steady and available for centuries to come.
