Bats, they’re helpful not scary

Given the fact that bats are more helpful to humans, rather than harmful and something to be feared, we created this Helping Bats Help Humans infographic to:

  • raise awareness about the valuable contribution of bats to the natural world and to humans,
  • to clarify how the relationship between bats and humans could subdue mistreatment, and
  • to suggest actions that can be taken to promote public safety protection.

Illustrated infographic highlighting the pros of humans helping bats.

The color scheme is light and airy instead of dark and scary to invoke a happy feeling. Also, the illustrations help visually tell the story and catch attention. Expression lines on the bat illustration brings more personability and cuteness to the face.

Best Practice Tip

When writing for infographics, use short, straight-to-the-point bits of information rather than long paragraphs of text. This allows for easier consumption by the reader and can possibly leave more room for eye-catching illustrations or photos. As you can see in this infographic, following this tip made plenty of room for the 2 eye-catching illustrations. This aided in breaking up the text even more.
