Teachers & Parents
The Save Lucy website is designed to allow children to explore bats and conservation by reading Lucy’s Story, then joining Lucy’s Club, where young users earn points by completing various conservation projects. The suggested actions are described in the Take Action to Help Bats section of this site.
Registered users can also contribute by uploading drawings, photos, or written material to the I Care Project. We hope this opportunity will encourage creativity and allow young people to explore different ways to voice their care and concern for bats and the environment.
Finally, we encourage users to record bat sightings. As bat populations decline, knowing how many there once were will inform management decisions. In addition, we believe that children of all ages need to go outside and explore the natural world. We hope to encourage bat watching as a way for families to explore the outdoors at dusk and dawn, when bats are active and visible.
In order to make this site as useful as possible, we welcome suggestions, likes, and dislikes from educators, parents, and users. Please let us know what you think by contacting us at saveLucy@saveLucytheBat.org.
Please check back often as we will be adding resources and activities. Feel free to let us know about your favorites!
Thank you and happy batting.
