This shirt is on sale to make way for a new design!!!!!🦇❤
All for the love of bats & mother earth alike!
Bats are amazing creatures that are vital to the health of our natural world and economy.
100% of sales going to buy bat boxes to donate locally! Will come with a card describing what we plan to do!
(We already have enough to donate 6 locally, help us do more!)
Bats have been on Earth for more than 50 million years. With more than 1,400 species, they are the second largest order of mammals, (our winged cousins!) and are widely dispersed across six continents. Globally, bats provide vital ecosystem services in the form of insect pest consumption/control, plant pollination, and seed dispersal, making them essential to the health of global ecosystems.
Today, bats are under unprecedented threat from widespread habitat destruction, accelerated climate change, invasive species, diseases and other stresses. Without concerted international action, their populations will continue to fall, driving many species to extinction.
As bat populations continue to decline worldwide, their potential for extinction only grows. While some of the challenges they face are endemic to their order, such as their slow gestation periods and diseases like White-nose Syndrome, the primary cause of their decline is human activity.
We have bat boxes around our farm and love watching in the evening as they help keep not only pesky mosquitoes at bay but also many other insects that are a threat to crops. (Bats save farmer's 1 Billion dollars annually by controlling these insects on crops!)
This was year was a record year for Mosquitoes in the northeast and when we recently heard what our govt wants to do to control mosquitoes (PESTICIDES) we thought what can we do! (Pesticides are a threat also to honey bees, friends!)
We love t-shirts to so we decided to design a shirt, sell it, and take 100% of sales to havs our pal build bat boxes to donate locally.
So, if you too are a lover of nature, and all of her creatures big and small, get your shirt today!
We are so excited to give back in this way, and Bat Week is a perfect time! ❤
