🦇 Happy #BatWeek! The forest in Sainte Luce is home to several species of bat, including the Madagascan Flying Fox (𝘗𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘰𝘱𝘶𝘴 𝘳𝘶𝘧𝘶𝘴), 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.
