Lubee places both conservation science and education as its two core institutional purposes. Lubee is a certified member of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). AZA is America’s leading accreditation organization for zoos and aquariums, and accredits only those institutions that have achieved rigorous standards for animal care, education, wildlife conservation and science.
Our outreach program consists of an age appropriate PowerPoint presentation focused on bat fun facts, followed by a showing of live bats. For the safety of our bats and audience, we do not bring the bats out of their enclosures. However, the bats are easily visible for everyone in attendance. In order to bring bats and give a presentation we need to be in a building with a screen, outlets, and table to set our enclosures.
