Buddhist monks supported their monastery by selling bat guano fertilizer. In 1981, sales had dropped to $12,500 U.S. annually due to heavy poaching of bats. After Merlin Tuttle discovered the poachers and advised the hiring of game wardens, sales rose to $89,000 in less than 10 years and reached $135,000 by 2002. Conservation
