CAPTAIN JACK SPARROW MEETS JACKIE SPARROW!


" Here it is folks...the mighty Johnny Depp got to meet Jackie Sparrow - the young orphaned bat that he is sponsoring, and had his photo taken with her. Young Jackie Sparrow turns 8 weeks old today. She was born significantly premature (Guessing around 6 weeks) so technically she would only be a week or so old. She was found on the ground in a storm by an ABC Volunteer who thought she looked like a piece of mud on the ground. She was so tiny with no fur on her, and has been in 24 hour a day care by Trish Wimberley ever since.

A big thank you to Johnny Depp for sponsoring Jackie Sparrow, and for helping raise awareness of Bats worldwide, and obviously HUGE praise must go to Trish for what she does for Jackie Sparrow and all wildlife. "

" Staff at the Australian Bat Clinic introduced the Bat to Johnny Depp, who was shooting the latest “Pirates Of The Caribbean” film near the rescue center.

Johnny expressed his love of Bats and offered to sponsor the little one as it undergoes rehabilitation at the clinic. Dressed as the movie’s lead character Jack Sparrow, Depp visited the center to meet and feed the little Bat.

Extreme weather events are often devastating to Flying Fox populations. Abnormally high temperatures and cyclonic winds can cause baby Bats to be separated from their mothers.

Rescued Bats being cared for at the clinic frequently remain for many months before they are released back to the wild.

Flying Foxes are large, fruit-eating Bats native to tropical areas. Unlike the smaller, insect-eating Bats found in temperate regions, Flying Foxes do not use echolocation to find food. Instead, they rely on their excellent eyesight to locate fruiting trees. They play an important role in seed dispersal of many tropical plants. "
