In the wake of COVID-19, Bats are being blamed and punished for no fault of theirs. COVID-19 did not come from bats directly and killing bats will not save anyone from the disease. It will only disturb the ecological balance and give rise to more such animal-borne diseases. Bats play a crucial role in the ecosystem and should be protected, not killed.
Bebo, a fruit bat offers clarifications on behalf of her kin. Please feel free to download the poster below in your language and help spread the word and protect this fascinating species.
