We decided on the name because it includes simple symbols for the two main habitats of bats --- trees (sticks) and caves (stones).
We also chose the name as an allusion to the age-old quote, "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me." Bats are, unfortunately, VERY MUCH hurt by words and the beliefs that go along with them. Humans are one of the biggest threats to bats. Sticks and Stones Rescue seeks to silence those hurtful words that cause people to react in fear when they come across a bat, so that we have less bats needing rescue in the first place.
