The authors take the reader through the nation's broad bioregions, describe what bats do in them, the ecosystem services that they provide, and some of the places where they can be seen. The book also features a brief description of the bat species in Australia, a section on bat myths, and stories and rock art from indigenous Australians. It is enhanced by stunning photographs from Steve Parish, most of which have never been seen before.

fascinated by these animals.
