Adopta Bat!

How to Help - Donate

During birthing season (October-December), Bat Rescue members rear many flying-fox babies which have been orphaned.  It costs our volunteer carers more than $100 for each baby for milk formula and food until release (around March/April).

Adopting an orphan assists us to cover costs. In return you will receive a personal baby profile, a mid-season progress update - and a warm fuzzy feeling for supporting a worthy cause!
To Adopta Bat, select the 'Make a Donation' button on the left that will direct you to the secure PayPal site.  Specify 'orphan' in the PAYMENT FOR box.  Alternatively, download the Adopta Bat form which can be submitted via post along with a one-off cheque (Australia only) or money order payment. A share in our annually featured 'syndicate' baby is also available for as little as $5.00.  Donations over $2.00 to Bat Rescue Inc. are tax deductible.  Any amount is very much appreciated.

Bat Rescue Sunshine Coast would like to acknowledge the generous support of the Sunshine Coast Council.

Funding through the Environmental Levy Grant has allowed us to continue to care for bats all over the Sunshine Coast.


Bat Rescue

Bat Rescue Inc. is a self-funded volunteer organisation whose members are permitted under Queensland's Department of Environment and Resource Management (DERM) to care for sick, injured and orphaned wildlife. Established on the Sunshine Coast in 2002, Bat Rescue Inc. was South-East Queensland's only bat-specific care group.  The aims of the organisation are:

  • To provide education and information to the general public
  • Active conservation of bats and their habitat
  • The promotion of bats as an important part of our ecology
  • The rehabilitation and release of bats back to the wild

Bat Rescue Inc. volunteers meet all costs including transportation, food and medications out of their own pockets. The rescue service is provided free of charge as part of our contribution to our local community and at the same time provides us with an opportunity to educate the public about the ecological importance of these unique creatures.
