    About This Project

    Thousands of pregnant bats migrate 700 miles every year in search of quality food and roosts. They follow nectar trails and pollinate cacti as the tequila agave.

    Migration is controlled by specific genes and is influenced by the environment. This project will aid in the protection of key areas for migration, the conservation of the ecological services provided by these bats, and in turn ensure the survival of tequila.
