Are vampire bats real? Are all bats black?
Bring the whole family to learn the truth about the amazing masters of the night: BATS! A white bat, a long-tailed bat, and even the wrinkled-face bat are on display among the hands-on and interactive elements of this summer's family-friendly exhibit.
Masters of the Night: The True Story of Bats allows you to get up close to these mysterious, misunderstood and fascinating mammals. Bats are actually gentle creatures that play an essential role in environmental balance. Did you know that bats are instrumental in the management of the tropical rain forest, which in turn supplies almost half of the earth's oxygen?
This interactive exhibition will dispel the myths about bats as spooky, scary creatures with facts about their habitats and behaviors. Visitors will experience a variety of fun and informative interactive stations, such as "Bat Ears," "Feast in Flight," and the "Echo - Echo Unit." The lifelike models and interactives reveal the ecological importance of bats and provide visitors with a better understanding of the role of bats.
Masters of the Night: The True Story of Bats has been exhibited at The Field Museum in Chicago and The Fort Worth Zoo in Fort Worth, Texas, where it generated enthusiastic crowds. Do not miss this unique opportunity!
A percentage of the proceeds from the exhibition are contributed to Bat Conservation International, for ongoing educational outreach. Dr. Merlin Tuttle, founder of Bat Conservation International, has endorsed Masters of the Night.
