Logo of Bear Springs Blossom Nature Conservation, international charitable nonprofit organization providing nature conservation education to all countries on Earth Signature of Bear Springs Blossom Nature Conservation, international charitable nonprofit organization Earth's environment: Home planet Earth with global issues. No borders for water contamination, no border for greenhouse gases. Global air pollution. Energy waste globally. To keep Earth beautiful BSB offers solutions relying on more nature conservation, more soil conservation, global energy conservation. Keep nature beautiful with Nature conservation, reduce air pollution, climate change, increase recycling, ocean conservation, Water 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 through affordable conservation education online to keep nature beautiful. Earth is warming up, global temperatures are climbing, pollution is causing global warming, learn online about nature conservation, how to secure your future, how to stay alive with violent weather, floods, earthquakes storms. Life on earth depends on plants, that produce oxygen, provide food. Nature conservation keeps Earth beautiful. Earth is endangered by pollution  worldwide. Polluted air, polluted water, polluted soil, contaminated food endangers life. Humans need Nature conservation to stay healthy, protected from chemical pollution. Worldwide 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. BSB global solutions offer help on many global issues. BSB research on geology is done by Peter and Marianne Bonenberger for decades: Conservation education online Geology: Life on earth depends on balanced earth plates. Billions of years earth balanced a natural process of moving plates. Mountains came up and erosion took them down again. Volcanoes rise and destroy land, build new islands. The science of geology explain how fragile Earth's balance is. Many schools teach not much about continental plates movements, but Geography and Geology knowledge is key to understand life on Earth, to see environmental problems. Spain's geology is very interesting, Africa pushing against Spain building mountains. Geological news of China. Since India is bumping into Asia, and the Himalayan s were pushed up and folded, people know about the geological forces on Earth. Environmental news to protect air + water + soil + food. BSB-research published in these news helps to keep Nature beautiful + to secure our future!

Why are Mexican free-tailed bats important?
animated bat in flight What Can We Do to conserve bat habitat?

What are the dangers to bat population?
BSB conservation education online: temperate rainforest map world map of tropical rain-forests, temperate rain forests shows how scarce rain forest are, how important rain forest protection Map shows US-area where 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

BSB Conservation online: face of a mexican free-tailed bat
The face of a Mexican free-tailed bat
Not pretty in our eyes, but Bats are mammals as we are!
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
mecican-free-tailed bat in flight
That's how we can see them - In flight they look quite impressive!

Mexican free-tailed bat Tadarida brasiliensis-

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
Bat in Bracken cave close to San Antonio Texas Mexican free-tailed bat Tadarida brasiliensis
Texas has with the Bracken Cave the largest bat colony with over 20 mill. Mexican free-tailed bats, located close to San Antonio
They have to fly ~1,000 miles from Mexico to this cave.
After arriving in the cave, the migrant mothers give birth to one pup.
Bear Springs Blossom Bat conservation: Every evening between March and October millions of bats fly out of Bracken Cave

At dawn you can see Mexican free-tailed bats dipping into the pond of Bear Springs Blossom Nature Preserve
Bats need water as all mammals do

At our Bear Springs Blossom 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!

BSB Science Nature conservation education: pollution facts, types of pollution, international pollution science. How to reduce global pollution, global greenhouse gases, global wildfires. Humans on Earth need better air quality, better water quality, unpolluted healthy rivers + ocean protection. Hurricanes kill animals + humans. Lower pollution with efficient home appliances, less energy waste, less water waste. Nature conservation reduces air pollution, water pollution with recycling, promotes green driving, energy conservation through better energy efficiency. Answers to all pollution environmental issues.

BSB research: Science definition Biodiversity means that every living being looks a little bit different, that babies do not look alike, that we have different plants, different health problemsBiodiversity

BSB recycling facts: Recycling to save resources! All raw materials and all energy are provided by our blue planet Earth, but they are NOT endless. Unfortunately, most of the provided raw materials + energy are not usable as they appear in Nature and are spread globally in deposits. Men need to use a lot of energy + resources to produce the materials we need. We have to collect, clean, concentrate, and transform these resources to generate primary raw materials that are usable for people and industry. Using recycled materials reduces the amount of energy + reduces the amount of materials we have to dig out! Most of all things we use can be recycled!
