Scientists have estimated the economic value of insect-eating bats to American agriculture at $22 billion annually. Bats also eat tons of insects harmful to forests, and their guano is essential to the survival of extremely rare cave organisms"

Introduction
I study habitat fragmentation in relation to extinction.

"In the end we will conserve only what we love. We will love only what we understand. We will understand only what we are taught."
 - Baba Dioum

"I once had a sparrow alight upon my shoulder for a moment... and I felt that I was more distinguished by that circumstance than I should have been by any epaulet I could have worn."
 - Henry David Thoreau

"Living wild species are like a library of books still unread. Our heedless destruction of them is akin to burning the library without ever having read its books."
 - John Dingell
