Our Wish List

By Supporting The Conservation Efforts of Fly By Night You Can Help Us Help Bats

Most of the supplies on our Our Donation Wish Lists below are used specifically toward the care and housing of bats at our facility. Responding to inquiries about'found' bats ‘in need of rescue' is time consuming and can be costly. Our goal is freedom and rescue bats are released as soon as possible, Injured or orphaned bats are provided with heated nursery enclosures and a prerelease flight cage. Long-term care is provided for bats which are not releasable. All bats in our care are provided with a special diet, housing and as needed medical attention and veterinary care. Please note -- no one pays us to do this, These efforts are provided by FBN without any formal compensation or reimbursement- we are NOT affiliated with any 'governemnt entity' (i.e. we do not work for animal comtrol). Fly By Night generously donates their time, advise / information, 'rescue' care and required supplies, as needed. We provide free advise daily and dozens of 'found bats' are 'dropped off' each year, but receive very few donations. Please consider supporting our efforts to help bats. Your generous donation will help us to continue our efforts to help people that need help with bats.
