U.S. bat populations, which have an estimated value of 22 billion dollars to the agricultural industry, are declining due in part to loss of habitat. An artificial bat roost, called BrandenBark, offers a unique and promising solution to loss of habitat for endangered bats. The film tells the story of the synthetic bark’s inception, new installations on TVA land, and groundbreaking research with these structures at Fort Knox, KY.
