Bat caves

Bat Conservation International are doing a project to identify priority bat caves around the globe. The information will be used to prioritize their international conservation work in the upcoming years.

I was asked for info about such sites in southeast Asia. Although there are many caves containing bats in Malaysia, there are few in the peninsula with significant colonies of bats.
And few of these caves have been studied for bat species, so it is unknown if there are any rare or endangered cave bats.
