Sponsor an African Fruit Bat

Bats are practically synonymous with Halloween, but they’re doing important work year-round.  Minnesota’s bats mostly eat flying insects—including mosquitos!  And did you know that many African plants depend on fruit bats to spread pollen and disperse their seeds?

Three species of African Fruit Bats share an exhibit on the Minnesota Zoo’s Tropics Trail: the Egyptian Fruit Bat, the Ruwenzori Fruit Bat, and the larger and more visible Straw-Colored Fruit Bat.

Please sponsor the African Fruit Bats at the Minnesota Zoo today.
