    This is So Cool!! My nephew is going to LOVE this. All the books, gorilla, and bat information (from the adoptions he has) will definitely make for a wicked sweet science report for him at school. Plus he Adores the animal kingdom. Thank you so much Henry, Bravo :).

    Awesome! Ben the bat! Who would have thought Superman will adopt a bat and names him Ben? Hehe!

    Jokes aside… this is a really good cause and I have immediately adopted Ben as well to show my utmost support for Henry! Let’s spread the word and hope more fans and peeps will come join #CavillConservation !

    What a charming video! This is a great update to receive this Thanksgiving day in the United States. I am thankful for Durrell and Henry striving to educate about and save endangered species! Have a splendid day!

    Dear Henry,

    It’d be my honor to adopt Ben this Thanksgiving. He won’t live with me in the U.S but he’ll be closer to you in Jersey, U.K. <3 :)

    And in a way i'm giving thanks to God for your existence in this world. Knowing that you have got the time to humble yourself by taking care of his creations warms my heart.

    Ben would be my first child. Or in this case our long distance child since you've already adopted him. Social media joint custody would work for all three of us in this case. Hehe!

    Spending my earnings this way would be worthwhile. Greatest achievement considering the sad uneventful year i've had. You make it easy! <3
    Can i adopt Kal too? Just kidding.

    Nice touch on the name by the way. Ben the Bat.

    IT'S A BOY!
    "Superman" adopts a bat, names him Ben!

    Ok so on a serious note, is Ben allowed to have another name attached?

    You are an inspiration. God bless your soul. Stay safe in Jordan.


    Erinah, New York ❤️

    I am very happy to have adopted the gorilla family and Ben the bat, they are so wonderful and adorable ❤
    We must all act together to have the greatest possible impact on the conservation of endangered species and that’s why I wanted to do something for them.
    I would like to thank you, you Henry, the Cavill Conservation and Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust for all your work to save species from extinction and I am really proud to help you and to be a part of it.
    Thanks again and I will continue to help you in the future.
    Take care of you all.
