Wild animal conservation: Bear Springs Blossom Nature Conservation, protection of all life, flora + fauna on Earth = human protection, conservation of all water on Earth = human protection, conservation of all soil on Earth = human protection. Millions of years earth balanced a natural environment. Global warming endangers the energy balance. Conservation of all water on Earth = human protection, conservation of all soil on Earth = human protection through affordable conservation education online to keep nature beautiful. The over-use of pesticides, and poisonous man-made chemicals is causing a decline in biodiversity, many bats die. Learn online about nature conservation, how to secure your future, how to stay alive with violent weather, floods, earthquakes storms. Nature conservation can keep Earth' environment beautiful. Earth is endangered by pollution. Polluted air, polluted water, polluted soil, contaminated food endangers life. Humans need Nature conservation to stay healthy, protected from chemical pollution. Nature Conservation to protect air + water + soil + food + wildlife + domestic animals. Millions of years earth balanced a natural environment, changed earthquake pattern caused by climate change.

Mexican free-tailed bats =
Brazilian free-tailed bats have been watched.
Also live in the warmer parts of the Americas
Populations have declined:
Decrease in habitat + damage to roosts + Consumption of pesticides

Mexican free-tailed bat Latin Tadarida brasiliensis = Brazilian free-tailed bat is native to the Americas.
Fossils show that bats have lived for over 50 million years on Earth. About 950 varieties are counted.
Bats are very important in the balance of Nature. They are good pollinators, and they eat a lot of insects - giving many plants a chance to thrive.
Many people are asking:
"What will be my future when there is no bat left?"

South America higher elevations are home to different bats. In the Amazon Amazonia and adjacent countries many bats help to keep the insect population in balance
Facts about the Brazilian free-tailed bat
Size: ~80 to 100 mm = ~3 to 4 inches
    Tail about half the size of the bat
Weight: 6 to 13 gram
Wingspan up to 30 cm = 12 inches
How old: 8 - 12 years
Offspring: Only one bat baby a year
Social animals that living in large colonies
Diet: Insects

Not pretty in our eyes, but Bats are mammals as we are!
once a year they give birth to a tiny little bat baby
Mexican free-tailed bats. The scientific name for this bat is Tadarida brasiliensis
Look how small Tadarida Brasiliensis is
A really small flying mammal!
closeup of a Brazilian free-tailed bat
Small with big ears to hear every sound!
Bats use echolocation! They send out a high pitch sound
The sound is reflected by an object and in the brain of the bat an image forms. These image shows the bat what is in front of it:
A tree trunk or something to eat ...
So bats fly around at night, sometimes over 40 miles and eat mainly insects

That's how we can see them - In flight they look quite impressive!

20 million Brazilian free-tailed bats live in the Bracken cave
At dawn the bats fly out of their caves and start to look for food:
Mainly moths, beetles, dragonflies, flies, true bugs, wasps, bees, ants
Brazilian free-tailed bats eat large numbers of insects nightly,
helping to reduce agricultural pests or disease carrying bugs.
There is a very positive economic impact on agriculture, and gardening.
Hawks and owls are hunting for bats.

Texas has with the Bracken Cave the largest bat colony with over 20 mill. Mexican free-tailed bats, located close to San Antonio
Bats have to fly ~1,000 miles from Mexico to this cave,
arriving there mid of February.
A female bat has just one baby a year, giving birth around June.
Babies are called pups, weigh nearly a quarter of their mother's weight.
Bear Springs Blossom Bat conservation: Mexican free-tailed bats. Every evening between March and October millions of bats fly out of Bracken Cave

mexican free-tailed bats like tropical rainforests. BSB provides education classes online to update science based nature conservation
At dawn Mexican free-tailed bats dipping into the pond of Bear Springs Blossom Nature Preserve
Bats need water as all mammals do

At our BSB Nature Preserve Mexican free-tailed bats have to navigate well with their echolocation system
to fly around our native Texas "cedar" = juniperus trees around our oak and cherry trees!

You are Very Welcome to send us your question!!!

We all play a part in the conservation of bat habitats.
The more we know the better we understand the problems of declining bat populations. Share your knowledge with others and encourage them to become involved.

Mexico environmental problems include not enough affordable nature conservation education to expand food production - Spain offers to little conservation education courses - members from Argentina help to spread the word of nature conservation, nature education - - Indonesia cuts down a lot of tree. Missing nature conservation education leads to deforestation, water contamination, erosion problems because of deforestation, endangering marine life and humans - China has a growing population, more energy, more food, nature conservation education is very low on the to do list - German schools offer conservation education, but a lot of people are too busy to learn new things

BSB preserves - - Lectures - Keep-Earth-Beautiful - BSB members strongly believe that Conservation Education CE is the only solution to give the majority of human beings a better life on Earth.
