Happy #Baturday! Today we underwent a great shuffling of bats, as our NoVA outpost is getting swamped with oncoming big browns. HQ agreed to take the wayward tree bats. Please enjoy a brief introduction to some, but not all, of todays arrivals. Featuring a little silver hair, a handful of hoary, and a somewhat confused eastern red.None of these rescues would have been possible but for concerned people who care enough to call, animal control officers who respond, stabilize, and transfer, volunteer transporters, vets who provide pro bono critical help, unpaid wildlife rehabilitators, and the donors and gifters who make the work possible. Thank you one and all! ... See MoreSee Less

Yes, we ARE a bat conservation and rescue organization. But sometimes we have to go in a totally opposite direction! We're helping out our partners at Wildlife Center of Virginia by overwintering a couple of critters that couldn't leave the ground if they wanted to, much prefer sunlight to the night life, enjoy a nice long soak in a puddle, and love watching life in quiet, solitary contemplation. Please welcome T3 and T4. #wildliferehabilitation #TurtlesRCool #brakeforturtles #belonginthewild ... See MoreSee Less

Not bats, but SAVE THE FROGS! inspired us to incorporate art into our efforts early on. This is a beautiful piece of conservation art!Congratulations to the 2021 SAVE THE FROGS! Art Contest Grand Prize Winner Alena Hisamova of Russia!⁠“My name is Alena, I am 16 years old and I draw frogs. My painting is called “frogs on a stick”, I painted it in watercolors, for me it is a favorite material, it helps to convey the liveliness of the work. Frogs at my work are like living things, and all living things need to be protected. This is what I wanted to convey with my work.”⁠Alena's art rose to the top in an extremely competitive contest, with 2,018 participants from 50 countries!⁠View all the winning art at:⁠www.savethefrogs.com/art-contest-2021Artists from the following countries took part: Argentina, Australia, Bangladesh, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Croatia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Iran, Ireland, Israel, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Malaysia, Mauritius, Mexico, Moldova, Mongolia, Montenegro, Nigeria, North Macedonia, Pakistan, Philippines, Portugal, Qatar, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Singapore, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Uganda, Ukraine, United Kingdom, USA and Uzbekistan.⁠Thank you to the 392 schools that took part, as well as all the independent artists! ...
