Today I was reminded of the adorableness of the pied / badger bat, Niumbaha superba. Please enjoy:

Love love love love love love love.

Start helping bats, bees, and biodiversity today by buying local, organically grown produce. Farmers who grow fruits and vegetables without harmful pesticides and chemical herbicides provide a healthy environment for the critters who live in the soil and pollinate flowers. If you shop in conventional grocery stores and markets (Kroger, Trader Joe’s, A&P), at a minimum, buy organic. If  you want to do even more to help the birds, bees, and bats, find your local farmer’s market at Local Harvest and select farmers who grow Certified Naturally Grown or USDA Organic. Please note that organic is not a marketing term. To be able to call one’s produce organic, farmers must grow without the use of chemical herbicides and pesticides. Words like “healthy”, “homegrown”, and “natural”, on the other hand, are unregulated. Get to know your farmer, eat better, and start helping our flying friends today!
