Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.

Bat World Sanctuary is on the front line to end the abuse and destruction of bats. We are recognized as the world’s leader in bat care standards and cutting-edge rehabilitation treatments, and we created specific guidelines for excellence in bat education programs that are used worldwide. We plan to expand our sanctuary in 2014 with the construction of a new facility on land that Bat World Sanctuary (BWS) owns. This larger facility will allows us rescue more bats in jeopardy of entering the cruel pet trade through zoo closures. We recently built a bat castle, a one-of-a-kind man made structure capable of providing habitat for up to 100,000 bats. The bat castle sits on the same land owned by BWS. Once occupied, bats in need of habitat will have a safe refuge where they can live and raise their young for decades to come. We also plan to build a man-made cave in 2015 or 2016. The cave will be located on a spot of land that has been donated for the project by a contributor. Over the past 20 years, BWS has worked very hard to become the largest sanctuary, rehabilitation and teaching sanctuary in the world dedicated exclusively to bats. We have trained over 400 bat rehabilitators, conservation scientists, researchers and veterinarians in workshops for the rehabilitation of insectivorous bats, and we have authored and published over a dozen books and scientific papers. We have created a worldwide database to help the public find a bat care professional in their area when they happen upon a grounded/injured bat. BWS has rescued, rehabilitated and released over 15,000 native bats and provided permanent sanctuary for 300 non-releasable bats. We have educated over three-million people through on the ground educational programs, social media, and videos (one which went viral). We have established a bat house projects in Mineral Wells Texas, Stephenville, TX, Clifton, TX and Corrales, NM. We saved a wild colony of 50,000 bats through the purchase of a building the bats had been using as habitat for decades (the building was slated for destruction before we purchased it to save the bats). In the past two years BWS purchased land to relocate, built a bat castle on the land to serve as protected wild bat habitat, and we are in the process of constructing a brand new, larger facility to rescue more bats in need of permanent sanctuary.
