There are several reasons why bats are endangered. Mainly it is because of a loss of their habitats. Rainforests are being destroyed. Also caves and nesting areas are being blocked and destroyed. THis can also take away their food supply.

It is important for a bat that is hybernating to not be disturbed throughout it's Winter sleep. This can cause them to lose energy and not make it through the Winter.

Should we protect bats?
