A few years ago, I wrote a book to help students learn about endangered animals. With the help of dedicated staff at a Bat Hospital in far north Queensland, I was able to find out more about bats and their habitat. I would like to dedicate this story to Jennefer Maclean and the tiny bats that she saves and cares for at the Tolga Bat Hospital in Atherton, Australia. (www.tolgabathospital.org)
Sharlene Kemp has kindly provided an amazing photo of the Tube-Nosed Bat, the inspiration for the illustrations in this story.
