Fruit Bat outreach materials by Project Pteropus

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. These are available as soft copies for you to download and/or share online (click on the images) 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 are more relevant to Malaysia (although they do feature two regionally common and widely distributed flying fox species), but the animated video ‘The Secret Life of Durian Trees’, 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 (including more pteropodid species) are in the works, so watch this space!

If you would like to obtain hi-res copies of these files for mass printing and distribution, please contact Hana. If anyone would like to help provide the current legal and management information relevant to Sabah, please do get in touch and let us know!
