    During the 1960's through to the 80's, the public awareness and interest in marine mammals and their conservation had a marked beneficial effect on the numbers of whales, seals, dolphins and manatees killed for commercial purposes.

Then goes on to address a host of questions related to flight, diet, habitat, reproduction, and social structure: Why do some bats live alone and others in large colonies? When do bats reproduce and care for their young? How has the ability to fly-unique among mammals-influenced bats' mating behaviour? A chapter on biosonar, or echolocation, takes readers through the system of high-pitched calls bats emit to navigate and catch prey. More than half of the world's bat species are either in decline or already considered endangered, and the book concludes with suggestions for what we can do to protect these species for future generations to benefit from and enjoy.
