Founded in 1982, Bat Conservation International (BCI) is a global conservation organization headquartered in Austin, Texas and dedicated to ending bat extinctions worldwide. BCI works to conserve caves, restore critical habitats in danger, and ensure the survival of the world's bat species. With more than 1,400 species, bats make up 20% of the world's mammal species. Globally, bats provide vital ecosystem services by consuming pests, pollinating plants, and dispersing seeds. Yet hundreds of species are threatened with extinction from widespread habitat destruction, disease such as the devastating White-nose Syndrome, and accelerating climate change. Together, we can save the most imperiled species for bats, people, and our planet.
