Lubee Bat Conservancy
Lubee Bat Conservancy is an international non-profit organization dedicated to saving bats and their habitats through research, conservation, and education, with a focus on children and community engagement.
Support a bat for year and save wildlife, inspire children, and engage communities! But not just any bat, the largest species in the world! Our Malayan flying fox can attain a wingspan of 6'! Lubee, located in Gainesville, FL, houses 200 bats that astound and amaze thousands of guests each year. Your support of one of our beautiful bats allows us to continue our local and global conservation and education programs that connect children with nature, foster a sense environmental stewardship, and inspire the next generation of conservation scientists to become leaders within their communities. Our Education Program in North Central Florida reaches over 18,000 people annually and we proudly partner with veteran’s groups and organizations focused on children. Research partnerships with the CDC, NIH, Boston University, and others, is bridging the gap between bat immunology, human health and disease ecology. These partnerships may lead to cures for the world’s deadliest diseases. Our conservation efforts focus on critically endangered species in FL and around the world in areas where the extinction risk is high. Programs in Madagascar and other threatened locations focus on children, communities, women’s groups and forest preservation. Lubee is an Association of Zoos & Aquariums certified related facility that undergoes a rigorous inspection every 5 years to ensure it continues to meet ever-rising standards.
