It took a little work, because wrangling things across continents and time zones in the middle of a crisis is tough, but we’re up and running. For those of you already involved in donating perks, THANK YOU! For those of you who contacted me and are not yet involved, check your email or ask boxes, as I probably asked you a question and I haven’t heard back yet. I’ll be adding more perks as we go.

Go forth, donate, and help the bats!

The rescue carers and bat hospitals in Australia are working overtime, and are WAY over capacity with all of the heat-stressed bats, most of whom are babies. This has been going on for a week already. I’m proposing starting an IndieGoGo campaign to help raise the necessary funds to rehabilitate these poor little bats. All the rescuers are volunteers working for volunteer non-profit rehabs. 

What I’m asking: Are you a crafty person or an artist? Do you like/love bats? Would you be willing to help pitch-in towards perks for an IndieGoGo campaign to help the bats? If so, please let me know.

The Queensland, Australia government-sanctioned killing of two threatened species – Spectacled and Grey-headed flying-foxes, has enraged bat conservationists across the globe. The government banned the shooting of flying-foxes in 2008 after the Australian Animal Welfare Advisory Committee found it was inhumane.  However, fruit growers are now being permitted to shoot flying-foxes, despite its acknowledged cruelty.  To add insult to injury, Minister John McVeigh said “It’s important every Queenslander understands animal cruelty is never acceptable”.  Ironic since Minister McVeigh has not responded to bat conservationist’s emails and has not made one single move to stop this uncivilized, cruel kill, condoned by Campbell Newman, Premier of Queensland.Four flying-fox species are being needlessly killed: Grey-headed (endangered), Spectacled (endangered), Black and Little red flying-foxes. Fruit growers can protect their crops far more effectively with nets, costing as little as $8,000 per hectare (or every 2.471 acres) and the government has a program in place to assist them with the expense, the Sustainability Loans Program. 

SIGN THE PETITION: STOP SUPPLYING PERMITS TO SHOOT BATS!
