I support bat charities and believe in the worldwide importance of them in all ecosystems. I have personally been donating what I can, I want to help to do more, but my family currently doesn't have a lot money to spare.
I am putting nearly everything in my shop on SALE for between 18% and 35% off!
I will be donating 100% of profits from any item listed with a 'SALE' banner to Bats Qld and Bat Conservation and Rescue Queensland
Over the last few days, there has been a heatwave that is devastating the wildlife of Queensland, Australia. It has reportedly reached temperatures as high as 122F!
Hundreds of thousands of animals have been dying every day of heat exhaustion, stress and dehydration.
There are rescuers working tirelessly to collect the few still living animals affected and are in need of supplies such as hydration fluids for the dehydrated animals, towels, food, milk and so much more. Most of the surviving bats are orphaned new bornes and juveniles, so they require a lot of care and have a lot of needs.
Sadly, I have yet to read a report from any of the rescue groups stating that have managed to have a single adult and have it recover, but they have so far been able to take over 200 babies into their care that are now recovering and at least there have been a few adults that have been able to have some comfort before they succumb. The rescuers are literately gathering up any bat they can and have been pulling still living babies from their mothers' bodies. No living thing should have to die like that if it can be helped, and for some of the babies, it can.
I rarely have sales as I try to keep my prices as low as I reasonably can due to material costs and work time, but I am trying to help a cause that I dearly believe in and time is precious, so don't waste it! I won't be offering this sale long, the more successful the sale is, the longer I will keep it going but I won't be having another sale any time soon.
