1. Nature / Objectives
Bats belong to the order Chiroptera, a Greek word meaning “winged hand”. Many people have misconceptions about these unique and mysterious creatures, considering them to be pests and in some cultures, omens of misfortune.
In reality, bats are benign animals that are critically important in natural ecosystems. Research on bats has also led to technological and medicinal advances for humankind, including medical ultrasound development and radar technology.
Through panel descriptions and experiential activities, the exhibition introduces the ecology and conservation of bats, offering a new and more true to life view of these amazing flying mammals.
