About

Bats are one of our most unique patients that are admitted to the Center. They need extra attention and specialized care. Maternity season for bats in Florida is April through August so that is when we have the most in our care but injured adults are admitted throughout the year. Baby bats are cared for by our volunteers in their homes until they are ready to go to a release cage. You will also learn to stabilize injured bats and give supportive care while they heal.

You will provide

scheduled hand feedings based on the age of the bats. (usually every 3 hrs)

maintain the incubators and specialiazed housing for the bats.
