Walker has chosen Bat World Sanctuary as this week's charity.  $200 from the sale of Walker's artwork will be donated. 

"Our Mission:

  • Providing permanent sanctuary for non-releasable bats.
  • The protection and conservation of wild bat colonies.
  • Promoting the humane treatment of bats in captivity.
  • Educating the public about the importance of bats.
  • Training animal care professionals on the proper treatment of bats.

Our Philosophy:
We believe that great animal rescue organizations are judged not just by the scale of the work that they do, but by the impact that work has on the lives of the animals they rescue. We actively work with zoos, researchers and animal shelters to offer an alternative to death. Many of the bats in our care have lived terrible lives before coming to us and we provide the security and privacy they need to recuperate from their previous existence. We firmly believe that all living beings exist for their own reasons and have a right to a peaceful and happy life, just as humans do."
