Fruit bats are amazing beneficial animals that are highly misunderstood and threatened due to prejudice and ignorance. They don’t get enough love, and we need to help them now, more than ever! Project Pteropus has produced outreach materials for public education and awareness on Malaysian and Southeast Asian fruit bat conservation. Some are exclusive, limited edition merchandise that can only be purchased via our Fruit Bat Shop. Others are available as soft copies for you to download and/or share online (click on the images further below) for non-profit educational purposes – all we ask is that you use them in their original forms that we have created, and please do not make any additions or alterations.
The posters, brochures, fact sheets and short documentary on flying foxes are more relevant to Malaysia (although they do feature regionally common and widely distributed pteropodid species), but the animated video ‘The Secret Life of Durian Trees’, the Durian Pollination Ecology infographic, the Green Humour infographics on bats as durian pollinators, and the children’s card game are widely applicable to all Southeast Asian countries, and can therefore be used across the region. More outreach materials are in the works, so watch this space!
