Bat Appreciation Day is celebrated annually on April 17th which is around the time that bats come out of hibernation. The more than 1,200 kinds of bats make up almost a fifth of all mammal species. Many eat insects, agricultural pests and mosquitos while asking for nothing but a dark cave to hang in. An enzyme in their saliva makes an excellent blood-clot dissolver and is used to treat stroke victims. Unfortunately, a disease called White-nose Syndrome has been devastating bat populations since its 2006 discovery in a New York cave.
