Ways to Help

Calling all potential heroes! 🦇
Bats need your help! We are seeking individuals who want to help us save lives by being a transport volunteer. We are compiling names and numbers of people all across the US for this to serve as a reference for when we have a bat in need. By signing up with the form linked below, you aren’t committing to anything specific. You are simply giving us, as well as other bat rescuers, permission to contact you if we have a bat in need in your area. Being a transport volunteer is simple! All we ask is that you pick up a contained animal in need, and deliver it to a predetermined wildlife rehabilitator. ❤️ Please complete this form if you may be able to help save a future bat in need. 
THE SUNSHINE RESCUE CLUB In addition to the over 400 permanent residents cared for daily at Bat World Sanctuary, we rescue hundreds of bats annually and return them back to the wild. We also support organizations both nationally and internationally who rescue bats. But, each time we provide support, we spend a little more of our precious time and resources. By joining our Sunshine Rescue Club,  you will be supporting our daily rescues around the world. Please sign up today to help us save our beloved bats!

Frog Logs & Critter Skimmers

Frog Logs and Critter Skimmers (links below) save countless lives every summer. They help bats as well as birds, frogs, toads, lizards, mice, chipmunks and loads of other critters who accidentally fall in to pools and have no way to escape. If you have an outdoor pool please add a frog log as well as a critter skimmer. These items will help save bats like little “Skimmer” below, a frog-sized evening bat who was found clinging to clump of leaves in a swimming pool in Colleyville, TX following a severe thunderstorm. Little “Skimmer” floated in the pool until he was discovered the following morning by the homeowner. He ended up with aspiration pneumonia and thankfully recovered. A frog log may have allowed him to find his way out of the pool and safely fly away.
