This teen is on a mission to make you care about bats

When I was in the sixth grade, I read an article about a local bat rehabilitator in the newspaper and thought it would be fun to volunteer for her. I really wanted to help her take care of the sick and injured bats, but there are laws about how old you have to be and other qualifications that a sixth grader doesn't have. The rehabilitator, Mrs. Leslie Sturges [also president of the Save Lucy Campaign board] was very nice and found a job that I was qualified for. She needed someone to write a weekly blog that would teach kids about how amazing bats are and about white-nose syndrome, the disease that is killing bats. I started volunteering for the Save Lucy Campaign and had so much fun learning about the bats that I kept doing it. I've learned a lot! And I've gotten to participate in a lot of fun experiences because of my blog.
