Mission:
The Save Lucy Campaign was created to raise awareness of white-nose syndrome and its devastating impact on North American bats by:

1) Engaging young people to take action on behalf of vanishing bats;
2) Empowering young people by providing tools and information with which to effect change and action;
3) Providing accurate and timely information to concerned citizens, especially those who normally have no voice in wildlife management decisions;
4) Providing conservation education to persons of all ages and abilities;
5) Supporting research and other projects that protect bat populations threatened by white nose syndrome through public awareness, funding, and captive bat management
Results:
We reach over 3,000 people per year with our local education programs. We have been featured in the media. We partner with other small nonprofits to help each other raise awareness of bats, bat conservation, white-nose syndrome, and care and compassion of all wildlife. We saw over 100 bats last year as part of our rescue efforts. We presented two bat rehabilitation workshops. We doubled our volunteer crew with amazing and passionate people.
