Season 3
Living with Bats

Rwanda’s bats have a terrible reputation for supposedly spreading Ebola and because they’ve supposedly tied to “witchcraft. In fact these massive “flying squirrels” are helping communities by keeping malarial mosquitoes and crop eating pests at bay. Scientists are trying to educate local villagers about their utility, while using the latest satellite technology to monitor bat migrations. The film visits a Rwandan bat sanctuary and breeding ground found on a secluded lake island.
