We believe strong scientific research is critical for effective planning of conservation measures. Bats as such are neglected species in India and many species are data deficient. For effective conservation it is vital to know the basic ecology, distribution, habitats and habits. We at Bat Conservation India believe there is dire need to increase more research on bats in India. To this effect we aim to network among scientists, field biologists, researchers, institutes and organizations and build a common platform upon which an effective conservation strategy can be based upon.
