Book proceeds to help fund bat sanctuary

By CHRIS AGEE

Local author and Bat World Sanctuary owner Amanda Lollar recently released a children’s book based on her first experience with the animal to which she would later dedicate her career.

About 20 years ago, Lollar said she adopted the first of many orphaned bats. Her mother, Gladys, was integral in the process and offered the name Baby See-through for the small creature.

Lollar said her mother encouraged her to turn the story into a book and she promised to do so. Though Gladys passed away before “Baby See-through” was published, Lollar said she is glad to keep her promise and offer the book in memory of her mother.

In the book, Lollar shares the story of a unique baby bat who loves herself and embraces her differences.

The book is available online at batworld.org. Lollar said 100 percent of the proceeds from the book’s sale will help fund Bat World’s operations. The non-profit organization is committed to the rescue, rehabilitation, conservation and sanctuary of the local bat population.

Lollar announced plans late last year to construct a “bat castle” outside of the city with the goal of relocating the bat population currently living downtown.
