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!
