Bats, through the eyes of Merlin Tuttle seem to be colorful and phenomenal. Merlin is a world-class expert in bats, but also one of the most phenomenal photographers of these unique animals. He founded Bat Conservation International in the early 1980’s. Recently, Merlin founded Merlin Tuttle’s Bat Conservation, where he currently acts as executive director with the mission to “teach people everywhere the benefits of co-living with bats”. We invite you to explore this modest gallery, with a selection of photos made available by Merlin to our bat portal, but also to explore the hundreds of photos on the original site.
