Who We Are:

Daniel and Sharon Peterson, along with our Egyptian Fruit Bats and African Straw-colored Bats, have been educating people about bats since 1996. We love bats, and with our experience and knowledge we want to dispel the myths surrounding these misunderstood creatures. We are located in the Chicago suburbs of Illinois, the heart of the Midwest.


For more information about our bat presentations visit our Live Bat Shows page.

What We Do:

We give multi-media presentations on Bat Education. Thousands of people, adults and children, have learned how beneficial these creatures are to the world around us. No group is too small or too big, because we will customize our program to fit the needs of your venue. Our live bat shows are perfect for a school assembly, boy scouts and girl scouts, library event, or youth groups.


We have live Egyptian Fruit Bats and African Straw-colored Fruit Bats that we can bring out to our shows. You can view more pictures and information about our bats on the Our Bats page.
