Bat Conservation & Rescue of Virginia welcomes adult volunteers. We need people who can help with weekday and weekend educational events throughout Virginia. We also need the assistance of creative people to help us develop outreach programs and opportunities and coordinate offsite youth volunteer projects.

Bat Care

We welcome volunteers who would like to help with bat care. Potential caretakers must be 18 or older and have pre-exposure rabies vaccination. A state permit is required, and we will assist in securing permits. Rehabilitation apprentices are desperately needed to ensure that bats in Virginia will always have safe harbor. Internships are available for summer pup season. Internships are not full time, but a small stipend may be available for qualified candidates. Internships provide opportunities to explore pup development, behavior, environmental enrichment, and social interaction among captive bats.


We are seeking help with administrative functions such as fundraising, grant writing, record keeping, bat box inquiries, volunteer recruitment, and website content and maintenance. Admin roles can be remote!


We welcome enthusiastic community members to serve on our board of directors.

Contact us directly for more information about volunteer opportunities.
