Updates from our Livingstone’s fruit bat survey

Livingstone's fruit bat Anjouan Comoros

 
Fruit bats are the largest flying mammals in the world, and with wings that stretch 1.4 metres from tip to tip, Livingstone’s fruit bat is one of the biggest. However it is also one of the most threatened as its forest home on Anjouan and Mohéli is disappearing fast. Follow the ECDD ecological research team here as they attempt to visit every single of the species’ roosts to assess the status of the population.
