Does the survival of tequila rest on this man’s shoulders?

Radnor Library and Radnor Conservancy will be screening this hour-long film at Radnor Township Building on Tuesday, February 21 @ 7:00pm. It’s free. I hope you’ll join us.

As a kid, Roderigo Medellin, star of Natural World: The Bat Man of Mexico kept vampire bats. Sometimes, he used his own blood to feed the bats. Yes.

These days all bats have become Medellin’s thing; he has devoted his life to saving and protecting them. Right now the bat man is saving the lesser long-nosed bat. It is also known as the tequila bat because it pollinates the agave plant from which tequila is made.

No lesser long-nosed bats, no tequila.
