Bat World - Kid's Page
Bat World is the legacy of a small bat, found injured on a hot
Texas sidewalk in the summer of 1989. Amanda Lollar thought
bats were vermin at the time, but not wanting the tiny animal to
suffer, she scooted the bat onto a newspaper with the toe of her
shoe. The bat was carried back to the family furniture store and
placed into a box with a small dish of water. The next day,
Amanda found information at the local library about the benefits
of bats, so she took the tiny creature home in hopes of healing
its wing and setting it free. Unfortunately, the injuries were
permanent, so "Sunshine" stayed on. During her short lifetime in
captivity, Sunshine sparked Amanda's indelible love for this
remarkable species. In 1991, Amanda chronicled Sunshine's
poignant story in her book, The Bat In My Pocket, A Memorable
Friendship. In 1993, Amanda founded Bat World Sanctuary, the
organization's first sanctuary for non-releasable bats.
