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.
Target demographics: Our educational efforts are geared to grades 2-6, however, preschool teachers have made use of our site to good effect. Several areas of the website are targeted to adults and give a higher level of information.
Direct beneficiaries per year: Unknown as yet
Geographic areas served: Washington DC metro area

I've been an avid follower and supporter of The Save Lucy Campaign since it's inception and feel it is THE best nonprofit organization in our area. The educational programs alone stand out and are fabulous. They're wonderfully given and perfectly geared towards the age level of the audience, from exrremely young kids to adult.

Not only does The Save Lucy Campaign educate, they're also a rescue and rehabilitation center for native orphaned and injured bats. I can't tell you the exact number of bats that are brought in every year, but I do know it's well over 100. This is a very worthy charity to receive an award! I'd truly like to see that happen..
