Lubee Bat Conservancy is an international non-profit organization working with others to save fruit and nectar bats and their habitats through conservation,
research and education.
Lubee Bat Conservancy (formerly called The Lubee Foundation, Inc.) was founded as a non-profit organization in 1989 by the late Luis F. Bacardi, a
Bacardi Rum family member with a strong passion for endangered wildlife and a particular fondness for bats. The name "Lubee" is derived from his
nickname, "Lu B." Mr. Bacardi devoted his life to the preservation of endangered species, and played a key role in ensuring a future for flying
foxes throughout the Pacific. In 1989, Lubee's support of a landmark conference held in the Pacific Islands resulted in Lubee becoming signatory
to The Pacific Island Flying Fox Declaration, pledging to safeguard against the exploitation of flying foxes and against the loss of the rain forests
upon which flying foxes depend.
