Tinybat goes to Washington

We are so thrilled to be invited to support the screening of Battle for Bats: Surviving White Nose Syndrome at DC’s Environmental Film Festival. We’re bringing bats to help show attendees what we’re losing. So come meet tiny representatives of the species we’re losing! Directed by David McGowan and produced by the USDA’s Forest Service in conjunction with the national WNS response team , the film is a sobering reminder of what’s happening to North American bats, but highlights the amazing amount of cooperation and effort that is going into finding a solution for an ongoing wildlife crisis. When: March 27, 2014. Meet bats at 6:30 pm; film at 7 pm, followed by a panel discussion on the National Response Plan to WNS Where: U.S. Department of the Interior, Yates Auditorium, 1849 C St., NW, (Metro: Farragut West) How much? The event is free, and no reservations are required For more details, click here If you can’t make it, please watch the film anyway!

An incredible experience

Our T-shirt campaign through Teespring ended today. We sold 178 shirts, though we only expected to sell 50 when we started the campaign. Because of your efforts we raised more funds for WNS research than we ever imagined. We want to thank the organizations that helped us spread the word: Bat World Sanctuary, Lubee Conservancy, Cassy’s Bat Cave, A-Z Animals, and Things to Make You Smile. We’re sure there are others, and we truly appreciate your help on our behalf!
