Lubee Bat Conservancy is proud to announce the recent births of several pups, including  Variable flying fox twinsThis is only the second ever documented case of twins in this species. The first occurred at Lubee in 2009.

We'd like to offer you the opportunity to name a bat and support Lubee's conservation & education programs.  We are seeking pledges of $250 or greater, and as a thank you, you will be able to name one of the pups. As they grow, your bat will be an ambassador for its species and the habitats we strive to protect.
To name the twins (both male) we are asking $500.
You will receive a personalized "Adopt-a-Bat" portfolio featuring a photo of the bat that you named and a certificate imprinted with the chosen name. All names and donors will be featured in an upcoming e-newsletter and on our Facebook page.
Please contact Tpope@lubee.org to arrange your special pledge and use Baby Bat in the subject line.
Deadline is Monday, October 9. Adopt-a-Bat gift portfolios will be mailed the following week.
