Artist Michael Banks AKA SUGARFUELED presents a small exhibition of mini-paintings of Bats entitled 'MICROBATS' with a portion of the proceeds to be donated to Merlin Tuttles Bat Conservation. This collection of tiny paintings is a play on the bat species suborder of Microchiroptera “microbats” within the order Chiroptera and the fact that each miniature painting is on a Scrabble tile. Microbats is my way of sharing my love for and knowledge of bats. Building awareness of the importance of these beautiful creatures, teaching the major roles they play around the world; the problems they face and what we can do to help.

Merlin Tuttles Bat Conservation - Bat's are very important to the Earth's Eco-System and are primary controllers of the vast numbers of insects that fly at night. Single colonies of cave-dwelling bats can consume hundreds of tons of insects annually. Furthermore, bats pollinate and carry seeds for many of our planet's most important plants. No group of mammals has been more misunderstood, needlessly feared or intensely persecuted.  Relying on a powerful combination of science, field knowledge and photography, MTBC is helping save millions of bats, protecting public health, economies and worldwide ecosystems by teaching people to live harmoniously with bats.

If bat decline is not reversed, we could face DIRE CONSEQUENCES!
