National Bat Week kicked off Oct. 26th and goes through Nov. 1st. Cast and crew of the new upcoming [Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice](movie:711870) were at Cranbrook Institute of Arts this past week celebrating National Bat Week by building bat houses for auction and helping to raise awareness of white nose syndrome the little brown bat population is suffering here in North America.

In the past few years we have lost nearly 6 million bats to white nose syndrome. The syndrome is a distinctive white fungal growth that happens around the muzzles and on the wings of hibernating bats. First discovered in 2006 it is quickly spread through out the United States and Canada, nearly half of our bat population is at risk. Bats are important to our ecosystem helping to reduce insects, acting as a natural pesticide, reducing the risk of disease such as west nile virus. Not to mention they are completely adorable!

Zack Snyder, Ben Affleck and Amy Adams were among the few there, to give their opinions, time, and support to this cause. Helping to build bat houses that will soon be auctioned off. Just one bat house can house hundreds of little brown bats, giving them a safe place to hibernate for the winter and reducing the risk of white nose syndrome. Help bring awareness! We only have a few more days left of National Bat Week and winter is just around the corner. Help Save The Bats!
