Only to collect money for our bats should be promoted with our pictures not for other peoples interest.

I’m signing this petition because it’s wrong to use these photos for profit. They could could ask for permission and pay. This money could then help to protect our endangered species.

Bats remind me of my jack russel except they are way more productive than my jack russel ;)

Animals are not on this planet for our amusement. We have the responsibility to allow them to live their natural life.

Bats are NOT pets...they are valuable pollinators & insect control and need to be Respected as such. DO NOT pilfer photos from hardworking wildlife rehabbers which show their work done and purport that you greedy exotic pet has any connection. Shame on the greedy 'humans' who show their true colors by trading in misery AND steal another's photos.....STOP IT NOW!

Bats are not pets and should not be promoted as toys, commercial animals.

I believe an exotic animal trade using Australian native wildlife images will only increase the demand for illegal poaching and the dangerous practices of smuggling wildlife. These people work bloody hard to protect and rehabilitate bats for release back to the wild, to see their images of the baby bats they have rescued being used to sell bats on the exotic wildlife trade is beyond heartache. Please, support our rescuers, carers and our Australian native wildlife.

I dont approve of this practise using baby bats. Leave these precious animals alone.

Our native animals are not pets and shouldn't be portrayed as such.
