Plant Guide to Help Florida Bonneted Bats

How can we help the endangered Florida bonneted bat? We get this question a lot when we talk to people about #ourendangeredneighbor. Zoo Miami developed this guide to make it easy for you if you live in Miami-Dade County! The Florida bonneted bat eats a lot of insects every night and these insects reply on particular plants to help them complete their life cycle. So, if you plant these native plants, you are going to be basically growing food for the Florida bonneted bat! You can find many of these plants at local native nurseries. So, use these virtually maintenance-free native plants to beautify your property, support local businesses by buying them at a nearby native nursery, and start growing food to help our federally endangered Florida bonneted bat! You can download a PDF of the guide by clicking here.
