Ruby was born on the side of the road in Qld, Australia and she would have surely died if not for the dedicated volunteers from 'Bat Conservation & Rescue Qld'. Ruby's carer (Denise Wade), was quick to attend to Ruby's needs becoming the orphaned bat's replacement mother.

Juvenile flying foxes require a lot of time, attention and affection to survive. They form very close bonds and will often vocalise to communicate with their new carers.

During her time in care Ruby will learn to fly, socialise with other bats in care, develop her independence and eventually be released to join a wild colony of little red flying foxes.

Flying foxes are a keystone species in Australia, responsible for the pollination of native forests, and the propagation of new plant growth via seed dispersal. Despite their ecological importance they are currently under threat in Australia due to loss of habitat, urbanisation and a negative image in the media.
