PLEASE HELP US WIN!
We are involved in a fundraising contest, the Macy’s Charity Challenge. Winning one of the top prizes will help us with critical rescues as well as vital projects that we have not yet had the funding to implement, such as widespread education on humane handling techniques for animal control officers and researchers, increasing awareness to biologists about the fatal effects of banding, and working to enact laws that prohibit the keeping of fruit bats as pets. The challenge is based on the amount of donations received and we are currently in 2 nd place. We desperately want to win for the bats. Please help us get there by donating here – even $5, the cost of a fancy coffee, will help us save lives.


WHY SAVE BATS?

Bats are clean, gentle and intelligent, they are vital to the ecosystem, and they enhance our lives in many ways. Fruit and nectar bats bring us approximately 450 commercial products and over 80 different medicines through seed dispersal and pollination. Up to 98% of all rainforest regrowth comes from seeds that have been spread by fruit bats. Insect-eating bats are literal vacuum cleaners of the night skies, eating millions upon millions of harmful bugs. They protect us by eating insect-pests that destroy crops as well as insects that cause human disease.

WHAT WE DO

rescue work video pic_edited-1Bat World Sanctuary is on the front line to end the mistreatment of bats.  Each year we rescue hundreds of bats who might otherwise die. Lifetime sanctuary is given to non-releasable bats, including those that are orphaned, injured, and retired from the exotic pet trade, zoos and research facilities. Bat World was founded in 1994 and is a 501c3 non-profit, accredited organization with both the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries and the American Sanctuary Association. Donations allow us to continue our rescue efforts for bats.
