This is a story about the struggle that bats face to survive, specifically in North America, where white nose syndrome is causing sharp decline in populations of certain bat species. The Invisible Mammal also explores issues like climate change and habitat destruction, and the role that humans must take to save bats from extinction. In this first installment of The Invisible Mammal series, we meet The Bat Rescuer. Corky Quirk is the founder of NorCal Bats, an organization that provides care for injured bats and educational programs for libraries, schools, nature programs, fairs and other events throughout the region. Corky has been working intensely with native California bats since 2005 and has educated thousands of people. She works with injured and orphaned bats, returning them to the wild and keeps a captive colony of non-releasable bats for use in education.
