Since our first project in 2004 when Bat Rescue co-ordinated an emergency airlift operation for 90 tick paralysis orphans from Far North Queensland, a number of major projects have been undertaken - often in partnership with other organisations. Our reputation as a group whose vision and effort goes beyond simply being carers has been well and truly established.
