Only 20 Christmas Island Pipistrelles left in the world: Save this Bat Species Now
- To encourage Austrailian Government to Rescue and Protect these creatures from extinction
The PIpistrellus murrayi is a species of vesper bat belonging to the Vespertilionidae family.
This animal is found only on Christmas Island and there are only 20 indivduals left - this little bat is the size of a quarter and they are covered in fur - they are living in a tree that is dead and they desperately need human intervention to survive.
The Australian authorities do not care that this little creature immediate rescue to prevent extinction.
Without prompt attention these little fuzzies will be lost before the end of 2009.
We, the undersigned, are horrified that Australian officials have ignored the critical plight of the Christmas Island Pipistrelles, and have taken no action to save them despite the fact that only 20 creatures are still alive.
These bats may not survive the full year of 2009 due to predators and lack of compassion from the Australian government.
