Lubee Bat Conservancy Shares Live Wildlife Cameras

The nonprofit Lubee Bat Conservancy is an international organization dedicated to saving bats and their habitats through research, conservation and education, with a focus on children and community engagement.


In partnership with Explore.Org, the world's leading philanthropic live nature cam network and documentary film channel, viewers can take advantage of the only opportunity in the world to watch bats fly, play, breed, give birth and raise their young in real time. Cameras placed in two separate habitats will focus on a breeding group of Malayan flying foxes, the world's largest bat, with a six-foot wingspan, and an enclosure with six different species of fruit bats.


Created in 1989, the Lubee Bat Conservancy is the only organization in the world that cares for bats while actively maintaining conservation and education projects. Their field programs protect wildlife, save habitats, create jobs, and engage children and communities. We also conduct acoustic surveys, construct/install bat houses, and provide guidance to residential and commercial customers on maintaining wildlife friendly landscapes.
