The Largest Bat Sanctuary on Earth

Bat 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 rescued from the exotic pet trade, zoos and research facilities. We are also involved in conservation efforts both locally and internationally. 

Bat World was founded in 1994 and is a 501c3 non-profit, accredited organization with the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries.


Happy October 1st! 🦇🎃

While October is full of spooky festivities, don't forget that it is also Bat Appreciation Month. Be sure to stay tuned for some awesome bat content throughout the month, and we here at Bat World are wishing you a spooky kick-off to the fall season! 🦇🍂
We want to wish our Fearless Leader, the founder and president of Bat World Sanctuary, a very happy birthday today! 🥳🦇

Over 30 years ago, Amanda Lollar rescued a little bat from the hot side walk in Texas, later to be named Sunshine, and quickly realized just how incorrect all the misconceptions about bats really were. No one would have guessed that this one simple act of kindness would grow to something so much bigger and greater years down the line. 

Amanda was a pioneer to bat care and rehabilitation, and she paved the way for many others with a love for bats to rehabilitate and advocate for these amazing animals. With her kind heart and triumphant strength, she founded what is now known as Bat World Sanctuary, the only accredited bat sanctuary on Earth. 

Happy birthday, Amanda! We are all wishing you a wonderful, batty day! ❤🦇

Two truths and a lie addition! 😊😊🥸

There are so many awesome things to learn about bats. They really are magnificent animals, and with so much false information out there, they certainly do not get the credit they deserve. 

We have really been enjoying Wingy-Wednesday and hope you all are learning cool stuff about bats! We thought for this week, we would try a two truths and a lie edition. Drop your answer in the comments below, and tune in next Wednesday for the answer. 😁

1. There are over 1,000 species of bats.
2. All bats roost upside down.
3. The smallest known bat is the size of a bumble bee. 


As always, thank you for the support, and don't forget to drop you answer in the comments below. We will discuss the answer in the next Wingy-Wednesday post!
Yes, fruit is delicious, but lettuce is awfully scrumptions too! 🥗👀

Christmas in October? Halloween in December? Either way, you're gunna need a bat ornament! 😁 It's never too early to start planning for the holidays, and we got you covered.
