Texas states Amanda Lollar, Bat World Sanctuary are not bat experts
For The Love Of Bats
August 2011 Amanda Lollar of Bat World Sanctuary intended to give a symposium on White Nose Syndrome (WNS) with the Botanical Research Institute of Texas (BRIT). She invited biologists, rehabbers and educators to the symposium. Someone from BRIT questioned TPWD about whether or not Amanda Lollar and Bat World Sanctuary were capable of giving the symposium and if they were properly permitted to bring live bats. TPWD became alarmed and quickly wrote a letter stating Amanda Lollar is not an expert, is not allowed to handle WNS bats, cannot have an assurance colony, has no permit to display bats and is not allowed to let her bats breed.
