Everybody loves a good animal rescue story. We have published countless amazing stories of dogs and cats getting rescued by amazing people. These 'tails' warm the hearts of people around the globe. While this story is still a rescue story, it revolves around some of our little friends who may not get as much time in the lime light as our domesticated furry friends. This story is about bats!
Most people relate bats to vampires, horror stories or vermin, but Trish Wimberley has a soft spot for these little flying foxes. Trish Wimberley, is part of the Australian Bat Clinic & Wildlife Trauma Centre. She has rescued hundreds of bats, taking them from being orphans and raising them until they are ready to be released to the wild.
The cost of maintaing the bat rescue is not cheap. The food bill to feed that baby bats costs upwards of $1000 a week, and energy consumption for laundry at $500 a week.
