The Art of Darkness

Adopt a Bat

May 7th, 2009 by Cobwebs

CleobatraThe Bat World sanctuary has a sponsorship program that allows you to “adopt” a bat in need. Sponsors receive a personalized adoption certificate, matted photo of their bat, the bat’s personal story, and lots of other neat items.

This would be a wonderful gift for bat enthusiasts, as well as a good teaching tool for kids. Many bats have long lifespans, and it’s great that this sanctuary offers long-term care for those that can’t make it in the wild. (I also love the idea of proudly displaying photos of my “adoptees” on my desk at work.)

Also be sure to check their Bat Bazaar for merchandise featuring some heartbreakingly adorable photos of bats, and their Wall of Shame if you want to get indignant.
