Bat Rescue Sunshine Coast would like to acknowledge the generous support of the Sunshine Coast Council.

Funding through the Environmental Levy Grant has allowed us to continue to care for bats all over the Sunshine Coast.


Bat Rescue

Bat Rescue Inc. is a self-funded volunteer organisation whose members are permitted under Queensland's Department of Environment and Resource Management (DERM) to care for sick, injured and orphaned wildlife. Established on the Sunshine Coast in 2002, Bat Rescue Inc. was South-East Queensland's only bat-specific care group.  The aims of the organisation are:

  • To provide education and information to the general public
  • Active conservation of bats and their habitat
  • The promotion of bats as an important part of our ecology
  • The rehabilitation and release of bats back to the wild

Bat Rescue Inc. volunteers meet all costs including transportation, food and medications out of their own pockets. The rescue service is provided free of charge as part of our contribution to our local community and at the same time provides us with an opportunity to educate the public about the ecological importance of these unique creatures.

Two petitions have been set up against the Flying-fox Control Amendment Bill that allows for the shooting and forced relocation of flying-foxes. I have listed the petition on two sites, Get Up and Avaaz, and I'm hoping that you will also list the petition on your website or FB page. I am a board member with Gecko and I'm also a member of Bat Rescue and Conservation Queensland. It was Louise who originally contacted me with information asking for help.
