Description:

Florida's Largest Bat:
Helping Our Endangered Neighbors with Dr. Frank Ridgley

Little is known about our state's largest bat.  Its total population is believed to only be in the hundreds and it is listed as critically endangered by the IUCN.  Known as the Florida bonneted bat, its range is limited to the southern tip of Florida and mostly concentrated on the coasts including here in Collier County. Come meet Dr. Frank Ridgley, one of the people dedicated to working with communities to save these local endangered species. 

Gather along the path by Alligator Bay for an informal mixer from 6 to 7 p.m. in the gardens followed by his presentation and Q&A in the Safari Canyon open-air theater from 7 until 8 p.m. Please dress comfortably for this evening outdoors.

Cost: General Public: $10 (pay at door)  | Naples Zoo Members: Free | RSVP TODAY.
