   Bat Conservation International

These folks, among many other great things they do for bats, are the caretakers of the largest colony of bats in the world .  Over 20 million Mexican free-tailed bats live in the Bracken cave just North of San Antonio and about 2 minutes from my house!


In a world where so many look away, Bat World Sanctuary is on the front line to end the abuse and destruction of bats. They have been recognized as the world leader in bat rehabilitation for over a decade. Each year they rescue thousands of bats that might otherwise die. Lifetime sanctuary is given to non-releasable bats, including those that are orphaned, injured, confiscated from the illegal pet trade and retired from zoos and research facilities. Bat World Sanctuary was founded in 1994 and is a 501c3 non-profit, all volunteer organization with 20 rescue centers nationwide.

  • To provide rescue, rehabilitation and release for injured bats.
  • To provide permanent sanctuary for non-releasable bats.
  • The protection and conservation of wild bat colonies.
  • To promote humane treatment of bats in captivity. 
  • To educate the public about the importance of bats.


         Jim Buzbee's Amazing site for Bats

Jim has an obsession with temperature plotting of his bat house and all things "bat".  He has countless links to sites which will no doubt leave you in awe.

Scotts Bat House Page  


Scott's site is designed mainly to provide bat house plans.  The latest research data from BCI suggests that 2 or 3 or more large bat houses in one location with different characteristics (color, sun exposure, size etc.) could be most attractive to bats, although one well built bat house should have good success rates as well.  Building a bat house can be a big job, so he offers custom bat houses for sale.

My Friend Gordon's Website/Blog

This site is dedicated to science education through the study of birds and is an excellent source of information and platform for K-12 students to share their interest, work, and questions concerning birds.

Jim Rosso has studied birds since he was seven years and lived in Syracuse, New York. He became involved with the Onondaga Audubon Society and has been birding ever since. He started photographing birds in 1967 and has been fortunate to have photographed birds from Washington to Florida and Maine to San Diego. He recently defended his dissertation in Education Technology. You may contact him at This site has some very nice photos!
