MARIANAS FRUIT BATS (Pteropus mariannus) are among the most important plant pollinators and seed dispersers of the Marianas Islands. This one is pollinating the brilliant flowers of a coral tree. Some 40% of the local tree species on the island of Guam are dependent upon these bats, but Marianas fruit bats, as well as other Pacific island bats, are now endangered. Their loss seriously threatens the dense tropical rain forests of the islands.
