This purchase is for STRAKER to make and donate a Bat Wrap to Fly By Night Bat Clinic to help with caring for baby or injured bats. $10.00 of your purchase will be donated to Fly By Night as I am donating my time to make the Bat Wrap. The rest of the cost is for materials and also postage.
What is a Bat Wrap?
A Bat Wrap is a surrogate mother for baby bats which have lost their mother from either heat exhaustion, struck by power lines or from any numerous reasons. It also helps carers feed sick or injured bats.
How many are needed?
A baby bat can go through 5-6 each day. Each year over the summer months the need for bat wraps increases particularly due to heat exhaustion. This season has been devastating with the addition of the bushfires.
How long will it take for them to receive the Bat Wrap?
It will take 1 week to make. Once it has been made I will send you a photograph of the Bat Wrap and then send it to Fly By Night via Australia Post which can then take 5-10 working days
Who do the Bat Wraps and donation go to?
The Bat Wraps are donated to Fly By Night Bat Clinic. In addition to the Wrap a donation of $10.00 will be made in your name to Fly By Night Bat Clinic. The additional amount is to cover costs and postage.
