πŸ¦‡ Happy #BatWeek! The forest in Sainte Luce is home to several species of bat, including the Madagascan Flying Fox (π˜—π˜΅π˜¦π˜³π˜°π˜±π˜Άπ˜΄ 𝘳𝘢𝘧𝘢𝘴), the biggest bat species in #Madagascar, currently listed as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List.
Although SEED has been working to protect bats for some years via Project Rufus, there has recently been increasing disturbance from illegal logging in the area. Last week Sylvie and Laza went to find out more and discuss with the local mayor how best to increase bat protection.
The mayor is very keen to protect the bats, and is working with SEED to ratify the local law and implement effective protection measures. We are also currently working on funding for the next phase of Project Rufus to help secure the future of the flying foxes of Sainte Luce!
