Did you know that there are 15 species of bat in Oregon?

The world's only mammals capable of true flight, bats have come under threat in the last decade from a fungal infection called White Nose Syndrome. It has yet to reach us on the west coast, but is spreading rapidly, and has already killed millions of bats in the northeast.

As a proud supporter of wildlife, Toyota is taking a stand on bat conservation. Toyota Motor Manufacturing, West Virginia, Inc. has included bat boxes in its biodiversity plan. These boxes give urban bats a safe place to roost during the day, so they can hunt for pesky insects at night.

Toyota's bat box project was so comprehensive, it was nominated for the Bats Project Award by the Wildlife Habitat Council!

At Lithia Toyota of Klamath Falls, we are proud to see Toyota Motor North America stepping up to support the wildlife that makes our country so unique. Show your support for the environment with a fuel-efficient hybrid from our new Toyota inventory.
