I believe I can fly

An interesting way to bring attention to endangered species. 

Going Batty

Not everyone likes to talk about them, they are labored with misinformation and they are dying. Bats are one of the most unique but often misrepresented wildlife species that we have in the area and unfortunately, we are losing some of them at an alarming rate. Bats are the only true flying mammals. There are several species found in Ontario and while some migrate south when winter arrives, a few stay behind and hibernate in caves. It is these hibernating bats that are dying en masse due to a fungal disease known as white nose syndrome.
