Giant fruit bats ready to fly again!

Indian (giant) fruit bats Pteropus giganteus

 

Ready to fly again! 4+ months of various phases of rehabilitation, following science based guidelines and protocols, applying modern veterinary care, species specific husbandry, and unparalleled dedication of Akanksha and her team at Jivdaya Trust – our conservation partner,┬ámade this possible. You can also see a mommy with a healthy baby that was born here while mommy was undergoing elaborate treatment. Most of these were injured by manja but recovered fully. They are caught from the flight cage after being assessed for flight and pre-release conditioning. Soon after this pic, they were released back in nature. Well done guys!
