Who Are We?
Give Bats A Break is dedicated to the 1400+ species of bats in the world and their defenders, wherever they may be and whatever form they may take - ecologists, geneticists, virologists, conservationists, taxonomists, museum curators, field biologists, environmental policymakers, rangers, community bat walk leaders, wildlife rehabbers, carers, advocates, activists, and superfans alike.
The point of GBAB - the Twitter account, the podcast, the Instagram, the YouTube channel, the merch - is to help make bats and their humans, largely nocturnal and unseen by most, visible and valued; to help continue changing people’s perspective of bats from a negative to a positive one; to help feed hungry minds with the most up-to-date bat science and research. Each item you purchase gives a resounding “yes!” to that work, and each time you wear a GBAB piece you get the chance to take part in that work yourself by explaining who we are and why bats are awesome.
Thanks for taking part in the GBAB mission and thanks for being a friend of bats.
