Organization for Bat Conservation at Cranbrook Institute of Science

The Korean Broadcasting System recently aired a new documentary called "The return of the pipistrelle," part of "The age of the Documentary" weekly series. They chose the topic because bats represented luck and were a good symbol in the past. However, due to TV shows and movies, bats are not represented as a good symbol anymore in Korea. This documentary sets out to change that perspective.

Footage includes an interview with Bat Zone Director Rob Mies, live bats, and Cranbrook grounds.
