Bat Parent Adoption Page

Become a Bat Parent at Lubee Bat Conservancy by symbolically adopting one of our beautiful Bats! Adopting lets you play an important and direct role in promoting the well-being of your favorite Lubee resident by providing not only the basic needs, such as food and veterinary care but, also to help enrich their life with a variety of toys such as puzzle feeders, bells, and balls.

 

With this symbolic adoption, you'll join our efforts to conserve Bat species worldwide. Your adoption will help Lubee to continue our conservation and education programs that help fight the threats that Bats face locally and globally, while empowering local communities.

 

Whether you purchase this fun and unique gift for yourself or someone you love, you will not only be showing how much you care for Bats and conservation but, your contribution will truly make a difference in the lives of Bats.

 

All symbolic adoptions are valid for a one-year period and may be renewed annually. Adopted Bats will have multiple adoptive donors and no ownership rights are conferred by adopting a Bat. All adopted Bats will remain in the care and custody of Lubee Bat Conservancy, after all we are the Bat experts, but we hope you will visit during a scheduled tour!

 

Shipping Information: Each adoption is lovingly and personally packed by a Lubee staff member. Please allow up to 10 business days for shipping.

 

Bat Parent adoption packages make one-of-a-kind gifts that keep on giving!

 

Our Adoptables

Frick & Frack are the second set of twin Variable Flying Foxes born at Lubee Bat Conservancy. These two are always on the move and looking for a little extra handout from our staff.

FRICK & FRACK

Chickpea, an Evening Bat, is one of the smallest and sweetest bats we have. Plus according to our Director, she's the cutest bat ever but, don't tell Snarf Snarf.

 

CHICKPEA

Snarf Snarf, a Southeastern Myotis, is Lubee's resident tiny gremlin and famous for her Snarfitude. She may only have one wing but this girl has moves like you've never seen before!

SNARF SNARF

Bloom, a Malayan Flying Fox, is easily spotted by her crown of golden fur on the top of her head. Like her name, she enjoys the delicate taste of flower blooms.

BLOOM

Grace, a Rodrigues Fruit Bat, is a friend to all … as long as you have a bit of fruit to offer, otherwise forget you. LOL You'll find Grace hanging out with her BFF Kuri! 

GRACE

Ziggy, (AKA Ned or Zned), an African Spurred Tortoise, can be seen lumbering around property on beautiful afternoons on the hunt for tasty yellow Perennial Peanut flowers and of course a good neck scratch from the staff.

 

ZIGGY

Sunshine (AKA Sunny), a Little Golden Mantled Flying Fox, loves his grapes and really enjoys playing a daily game of Hide & Seek with the Keepers!

SUNSHINE

Kuri, a Spectacled Flying Fox, is one of Lubee's well known and very loved bats. She may be the only one of her kind in the Western Hemisphere but, No Worries! Kuri has her BFF Grace to get into trouble with. :)

KURI
