of Old World fruit bats and their habitat through conservation,
education and research. Their goal is to save Old World fruit
bat populations and their
habitat with a non confrontational approach to reach solutions
which benefits bats, peoples and ecosystems.
Flying Fox Fund believes education is the greatest tool one can
use to conserve fruit bat populations from decline. Teaching
governments, forestry, wildlife personnel and the public the
benefits of bats. Help them understand how fruit bats impact
their daily lives. Research is essential for a better understand
of fruit bat biology, behavior, and conservation needs.
