Bats are one of Australia’s most important but misunderstood native species. This playful and informative explainer video uses a refined scientific visual language to engage sophisticated adult audiences, encouraging them to care about Australian bats. By debunking common bat myths, this video aims to overcome misinformation, public vilification, and highlight their significance to Australian biodiversity. In a world of misinformation and fear, this video demands truth, respect, and care for a such a vulnerable and maligned species.
