Bat Trunk Reservations


Whether you are a school teacher planning a bat study unit, a non-profit organization creating an exhibit, a nature center wishing to highlight the importance of bats or a scout troop focused on families and neighborhoods, we have the resources to help you make the most of your event.

PLEASE NOTE: Though use of the bat trunk is free of charge, we now require payment of a $40 round-trip shipping fee before the trunk can be sent. BCI will arrange for the FedEx pick-up on the date specified (the last Monday in each date range).

In exchange for the use of the Bat Conservation International Bat Trunk, I agree to:

  • Return the material in the same condition in which it was received. If items are missing or broken upon receiving the trunk, I will contact the Bat Trunk Coordinator immediately, or I will be held responsible for their replacement. If items are broken or missing due to actions while in my care, I agree to cover the cost to replace the items.
  • 2-WEEK CHECK-OUT PERIOD: You will have two (2) full calendar weeks from the arrival date requested to use the trunk.
  • IMPORTANT: Please complete and return the evaluation form provided with the trunk, and ask students/audience members to complete the brief pre- and post-program quiz; both will help us to continue improving the quality and usefulness of our materials.

Select the date on which you prefer the Bat Trunk to arrive. In case there is not a trunk available for the date specified, please select up to two alternate dates. All date ranges begin on a Monday and span two calendar weeks. BCI will arrange for the pick-up on the last date in each two-week range. Please let the Bat Trunk Coordinator know immediately if you don't need the trunk for the entire two-week period, so an earlier pick-up date can be arranged.

BCI relies on the support of our amazing members around the world.

Our mission is to conserve the world’s bats and their ecosystems to ensure a healthy planet.
