Congratulations Kdon Galay, your Giant Golden-Crowned Flying Foxes have been chosen as Spotting of the Day for #BatAppreciationDay:

"Today is #BatAppreciationDay! There are many reasons as to why we should appreciate bats. Not sure why? Learn about bats in this blog piece from our archives: https://buff.ly/2zbarZ6
Bat species around the world continue to be threatened by human-related activities. Together with well known threats to biodiversity such as habitat loss and hunting, bats face newer threats such as the spread of white-nose syndrome in North America and mass die-offs from heat-waves due to climate change.
