EUROBATS: 22nd International Bat Night

Yet bats are among our planet´s most endangered wildlife, fake news about bats as transmitters of diseases spread fears and speculations leading to public concerns and even the killings of animals.

Therefore, bat conservation requires public awareness and consideration as bats often both breed and hibernate in houses, churches, and other buildings.  

To this end, since 1997 the International Bat Night (IBN) is organised under the auspices of the Agreement on the Conservation of Populations of European Bats (EUROBATS) Secretariat, which is based in Bonn since 1996. 

In the night of 25 to 26 of August, nature conservation agencies and non-governmental Organisations (NGOs) in more than 30 countries across Europe pass on information to the public. Through workshops, seminars, exhibitions and bat walks, often offering the opportunity to listen to bat sounds through ultrasound technology, they inform about the way bats live and their needs.
