Review for Bat Conservation International, Inc., Austin, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

BCI was the first international organization helping bats and works in a broad spectrum of ways to protect them through education, research, fundraising, conservation efforts and acting as an information clearing house, among other activities. I have always found this organization to be ambitious, reliable and effective. This is a crucial go-to resource for anyone interested in bats and I refer people to their website regularly. I have found their personnel to be helpful, knowledgeable and courteous. This organization gets an A+ in my book, and for that reason, I donate as much as I can to them and have done so for many years. Thank you for the great and important work. Keep at it as bats are the most crucial of creatures.

Review for Bat World Sanctuary, Mineral Wells, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When I first became a bat rehabilitator, Bat World Sanctuary was my first major resource, providing detailed and useful information largely unavailable anywhere else. Amanda Lollar's writings on bat care were my bible. Several times I telephoned Amanda and she was always generous with her time and knowledge (I don't know where she finds the time to help us all, and the bats)! Over the years since, she continues to update her publications and materials and continues to be a source of constant support. I don't know what I and the bats would do without her. No words can express her generosity of spirit and her extraordinary ability to provide reliable information on the care of bats. She has saved innumerable bats all over the planet, and their children and children's children. One of my dreams is to travel to her location, meet her and learn more under her in-person tutelage. Thank you Amanda, and all of those who work with you to save our precious bats.
