Flying Fox Conservation Fund

Scott Heinrichs was a animal keeper at Lincoln Park Zoo for 13 years until a trip to Sulawesi where he witnessed cages of frighten flying foxes in the markets waiting to slaughtered for food. He left the zoo, sold his home, and started a journey back to Indonesia to be a voice for fruit bats. He started an organization called Flying Fox Conservation Fund, and this year became a 501c3 not for profit.
