As a satellite facility of Bat World Sanctuary
, Bat World MidCities provides care for orphaned, ill, and injured native bats and other wildlife in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. We are permitted by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. Our facility is not open to the public, in compliance with state regulations. However, Bat World offers live webcams
24/7, as well as photos and videos on social media.
We offer a variety of professional development workshops
related to wildlife rehabilitation, and have developed free-to-download resources for community education programs
. Workshop and program fees support the animals in our care. Bat World Sanctuary is a 501c3 nonprofit organization, and we gratefully accept donations to help fund our work. We receive no government funding.
All of our courses are approved by Texas Parks and Wildlife, Texas Department of State Health Services, and the National Animal Care and Control Association for TX wildlife rehabilitator and TX Animal Control Officer CE hours, as well as CE hours for NACA members. Virtual classes are recorded and closed captioning is available on request. ASL interpretation for in-person classes can be arranged with sufficient notice.
