Ask your local theater to show white-nose syndrome public service announcements before Batman v Superman!

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens March 25 and you can help bats by asking your local theater to run a public service announcement right before the show. Here's a script to help you pitch the idea.

Hello!

My name is __________. I live in  ___________ and I love going to the movies at your theater.

I wanted to get in touch with you about the upcoming release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Did you know that bats in North America are dying by the millions from a disease called white-nose syndrome? In light of this, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice cast member Ben Affleck and Amy Adams and director Zack Synder created a Public Service Announcement, which includes footage of them building bat boxes using materials from the movie set.

Not everyone likes bats, but Affleck, Adams and Synder understand that bats are essential to insect control and keep our crops safe from insect damage. A world with out bats would be bad.

With the film release scheduled for March 25, I'm hoping that you'll join theaters across the country in supporting bats by showing the Batman v Superman PSA (run time 4:54) or a white-nose syndrome PSA (run time 0:54) before the movie.

This is a great way to reach out to your community and make a difference in the health of our environment!
