Hi there. Congratulations on getting 3rd place. You have a worthy cause, and you were a worthy competitor. 1st place wasn't very sportsman like, throwing it all down at the end there, but what can you do?

It was a pleasure running against you, and glad to see you raised so much money for the bats.

WE WON THIRD PRIZE!

Thank you again, so very much, for donating to our Earth Day Challenge contest! The last few minutes of the contest were literally harrowing, our hearts felt like they would pound out of our chest while hitting refresh after refresh after refresh. We seriously wondered if we would make it, with other groups coming up from behind and out of nowhere with lightening speed. But, thanks to you -our loyal supporters- we managed to stay in third place! The money that came in through the contest, as well as the $10,000 third prize winnings, will allow us to save and better the lives of hundreds of bats FOR AN ENTIRE YEAR. Thank you so very much for every penny you gave in making this happen!

And if you have not already received it, a tiny air hug from Lil Drac is included with this email. This email also contains access to your autographed photo of Peekaboo, who we all know is the most charming bat on earth (well, next to Lil Drac, of course :) Please click the link below to access your high-resolution photo of Peekaboo: https://www.batworld.org/peekaboos-photo/

Again, thank you, on behalf of all the injured, orphaned and abused bats who will be helped due to your compassionate support.

Amanda

P.S. In case you didn't see this before, here is a link to our online magazine which includes articles and videos on our recent rescues: http://www.batworld.org/online-magazine/

Thank you so very much for donating to our Earth Day Challenge contest! We have slipped to third place but we are holding on fast and, thanks to you, still have a very good chance to win!

Our organization faces a continual uphill battle in securing the financial resources it takes to rescue these misunderstood animals. Your contribution will make a difference in the number of lives we will be able to save in the coming months.

Our Mission

To provide permanent sanctuary for non-releasable bats, the protection and conservation of wild bat colonies, to promote humane treatment of bats in captivity, and to educate the public about the importance of bats.

In a world where so many look away, Bat World Sanctuary is on the front line to end the abuse and destruction of bats. Each year we rescue thousands of bats that might otherwise die. Lifetime sanctuary is given to non-releasable bats, including those that are orphaned, injured, confiscated from the illegal pet trade and retired from zoos and research facilities. Bat World Sanctuary was founded in 1994 and is a 501c3 non-profit, all volunteer organization.

Please help us build a new Bat World!

The first phase (habitat for wild bats) is already completed!: The Bat Castle. We need your help to complete the second phase, a new sanctuary for non releasable bats:

The new Bat World facility will include expansive indoor-outdoor flight enclosures for the bats, and will be large enough to accept more bats who are relinquished from the exotic pet trade as well as those who are be retired from zoos and research (see plans here). In the past three years dozens of bat zoo exhibits have closed, leaving hundreds of bats in dire need of sanctuary. Sadly, many of these bats end up in the exotic pet trade where their 25 year life expectancy is often cut short to less than a year (read more about “pet bats” here). Bat World desperately needs to expand in order to take in more of these helpless animals, before a worse fate befalls them.
 

Please help us with this critical project by donating today!
