Baturday News is a weekly blog written by Rachael, a high school student, bat advocate, and Save Lucy volunteer. Rachael’s interest in bats was sparked by the big brown bats that used the outside of her former home for a winter roost. Rachael has been writing the Baturday News for over three years.
Hi everyone! I hope you all had a good week! I hope it was all batty!
You may remember that I was told that my Baturday News post last week was too modest. I was trying something new. As you know, I am already fabulously famous. After all, I have been in many videos. I have yet to win any awards, though. So, this time, I was thinking of trying a different approach. I was thinking that, perhaps, if I waited a week to talk about Bat Squad and my starring role (there are a few stars), that maybe, perhaps, I would get an Oscar or an Emmy this time around. Maybe the people handing out awards think I was too demanding last time. I’m sure it will work. I’m absolutely certain that I’ll be nationally recognized this time around! No pressure people!!!
Anyway, I am excited to be a part of Bat Squad. It is an amazing group of kids from around the country and I feel honored to be chosen to be a part of it. You can read all about the other kids and what they are doing to help bats here. They have done some really amazing work! I am a little jealous of Madison. She has gotten to hold bats! I think that would be amazing. It’s exciting to know that there are so many other kids out there who love bats. And it’s nice to know there are kids all around the country who are interested in helping bats.
The Bat Squad webcasts will be aired the last week of October. That week is officially Bat Week. Bat Week is just part of a wonderfully batty month. Did you know that October is Bat Appreciation Month? That’s right. I’m sure it is because everyone associates bats with Halloween. So, while you are looking forward to Bat Week, don’t forget to do what you can to help bats all month long. By the way, it is perfectly acceptable and appreciated to help bats during other times of the year. 🙂 So, go out there and have fun helping our little furry friends! It will be amazing and if you’re lucky, you’ll see bats flying above you.
I hope you all have a good week.
