A message from The Organization for Bat Conservation


The Organization for Bat Conservation ( has, unfortunately, closed its doors. We thank everyone in the community who has supported us in this transition. Our wonderful partners who share our mission to educate and inspire people to save bats have given new homes to our animal ambassadors, will keep our online resources available, and are committed to teaching people that bats are important and worth protecting. These partners include: Lubee Bat Conservancy, Bat World Sanctuary, Jacksonville Zoo, Detroit Zoological Society, Stage Nature Center, and the US Forest Service

Live bat programs in Michigan will continue to be available through our partner, Leslie Science & Nature Center. More information about Leslie can be found at

Outside of Michigan, our partner (this website) Bat Conservation International is a leader in conserving the world's bats and their ecosystems. Enjoy their website, and support them in any way you can.
