Bat City USA( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bat City USA is a compelling documentary about how a city overcame its fear of one of the world's most misunderstood creatures and now heartily embraces them, largely thanks to the efforts of one man. A giant colony of Mexican Free-tailed bats moved into an Austin, Texas bridge in the 1980's after a reconstruction project created an ideal roosting habitat. The "bat invasion" launched a media hoopla and alarm among residents worried about bat attacks and rabies. When the city threatened to exterminate the bats, a zealous conservationist named Merlin Tuttle stepped in and fought to save them. Tuttle, a bat researcher at a Milwaukee museum, moved to Austin, which he called the epicenter of "worldwide bad bat publicity", and founded Bat Conservation International to promote a positive image of bats. To overcome local opposition, he worked tirelessly to change public perception of the bats--from scary disease carriers to desirable creatures who help keep moths and mosquitos in check, among other environmental benefits. As a pioneering bat photographer whose images were published in National Geographic, Tuttle used his striking photos as one important weapon in his battle for the bats. Thanks to Tutttle's efforts, Austin now loves its bats. Thousands of tourists annually are drawn to the downtown setting for a fascinating, close-up glimpse of the world's largest urban bat colony-- nearly one million bats"--The Video project website
The secret lives of bats : my adventures with the world's most misunderstood mammals by Merlin D Tuttle( Book )

3 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From menacing moonshiners and armed bandits to charging elephants and man-eating tigers, Merlin Tuttle has stopped at nothing to find and protect bats on every continent they inhabit. Enamored of bats ever since discovering a colony in a cave as a boy, Tuttle saw how effective photography could be in persuading people not to fear bats, and he has spent his career traveling the world to document them. Few people realize how sophisticated and intelligent bats are. Tuttle shares research showing that frog-eating bats can identify frogs by their calls, that vampire bats have a social order similar to that of primates, and that bats have remarkable memories. Bats also provide enormous benefits by eating crop pests, pollinating plants, and carrying seeds needed for reforestation. They save farmers billions of dollars annually and are essential to a healthy planet. Sharing highlights from a lifetime of adventure and discovery, Tuttle takes us to the frontiers of bat research and conservation and forever changes the way we see these poorly understood yet fascinating creatures
