Gone batty

I received a recent issue of Catalog Age that included an advertisement for the List Technology Systems Group. The ad was meant to be lighthearted and funny, but unfortunately it depicts bats in a negative light, suggesting that all bats are ugly and attack. Your readers should know that bats are nonaggressive and highly beneficial if left alone-and some are even handsome!

Bats continue to rank among the least appreciated and most misunderstood of all animals; ads such as this only reinforce these negative stereotypes. I encourage you to learn more by browsing Bat Conservation International’s home page (www.batcon.org) to find out the real story about bats.
