CONSERVATION CRISIS

  • Bats are facing unprecedented threats from habitat destruction, illegal poaching, and persecution due to misinformation.

  • Each loss is irreversible, and as these creatures vanish, so too does the rich tapestry that sustains life on Earth.

  • The loss of bats is not just a loss for biodiversity but a perilous step towards ecological imbalance that affects us all.

Lubee’s Words To Action

  • Rodrigues Island - Education and community programs focus on Rodrigues Fruit Bat recovery and habitat restoration.  The current population is now at 20,000 bats.

  • Papua New Guinea – Expanding Key Biodiversity Areas and protection for Monkey-faced Bats by mapping roost sites and tracking critically endangered species.

  • USA - Since 2017, Lubee staff have built and installed over 150 bat houses, providing crucial roost habitats for maternity colonies.
