The full-grown bumble-bee bat (Craseonycteris thonglongyai), at about the size of a bumble bee,is considered one of the smallest mammals on the planet. But its comparatively wide wingspan enables the animal to hover and cover long distances, which it navigates, like other bats, with echolocation. The bumble-bee bat inhabits only a certain area of Thailand and Myanmar and is listed as “vulnerable” on the IUCN Red List, because the population of less than 10,000 has been disturbed by human activity in the limestone caves and bamboo deforests where they reside.
We are a group of students who want to share our research on ape-human relationships at a conference in Japan: The OITA Text Forum
My friends and I are trying to get to a Systemic Functional Linguistics conference in Japan! It’s coming up really soon. We’re fundraising if anyone wants to participate, we are doing a really cool post card fundraiser! If you donate money to our fundraising we’re going to send you a postcard from Japan. They can also be sent to someone if you’d like. It will be really neat, full of strange and odd fun facts!
