On the front line of advocacy to end the abuse and destruction of bats. BWS has been recognized as the world leader in bat rehabilitation and rescues thousands of bats that might otherwise die. Lifetime sanctuary is given to nonreleasable bats, including those that are orphaned, injured, confiscated from the illegal pet trade and retired from zoos and research facilities. Bat World Sanctuary was founded in 1994 and is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, all volunteer organization.
Bat Week is an annual, international celebration of the role of bats in nature. Bat Week occurs at the end of October and is organized by a team of representatives from across North America from conservation organizations and government departments.

An award-winning software platform designed to help people reconnect with the natural world. Launched out of NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program in early 2010, the project began as an experiment to mobilize citizen scientists and build a digital butterfly net for the 21st century. Backed by National Geographic, Project Noah is mobilizing a new generation of nature explorers and helping people from around the world appreciate their local wildlife. Our community is harnessing the power and popularity of new mobile technologies to collect important ecological data and help preserve global biodiversity.
Our hope is to not only bring back recollections of the past but also create new memories by providing a place for our community to gather around warm food, good people and share a part of our mountain heritage. And they promote conservation through being fully solar powered and providing bat and bee habitat.
