Adelaide Bat Care is a voluntary service.

We can be contacted at any time to provide advice and assistance to ensure these delicate little creatures receive prompt attention.

They may be injured and need rescuing or they may just need to be left in a secure/safe place until after dusk when they can be released back into the wild.

PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT TO GIVE ANY FLUIDS OR FOOD TO THE BAT. THE BAT MAY BE IN SHOCK AND COLD, AND OFFERING FLUIDS OR FOOD COULD BE FATAL TO THE LITTLE BAT.

PLEASE SPEAK WITH US SHOULD THE BAT PASS AWAY SO THAT THE BAT CAN BE FORWARDED TO OUR SENIOR VETERINARIAN.
