Lubee Bat Conservancy

Gainesville, Florida - United States

We are an international non-profit organization dedicated to protecting biological diversity through the conservation of fruit bats.

We focus our efforts on plant-visiting 'fruit and nectar' bats because they are vulnerable to extinction yet vital to the world's rainforests and deserts and to the economies of developing countries. By protecting these bats we are working to conserve the more than 145 genera of plants that depend on them for pollination and seed dispersal; the countless organisms that depend on those plants for food and shelter; and ultimately all people that depend on healthy ecosystems. Our mission is to save fruit bats and their habitats through research, conservation and education.
