Bats in danger
This project was born due to a negative attitude of a large group of local people in the Cross Border area toward bats. This can lead to the degradation of the natural sources, overturning the sustainability of the ecosystem in the targeted territories of Hungary, Romania, Slovakia and Ukraine.
key elements of the ecosystem
Bats are key element of the ecosystem since they are directly responsible to the agricultural pest control (consuming insects). Due to the myths and fairy tales created by people, bats become subjects of prejudices. The extinction even of one bat species will provide enormous ecological losses and a wide scale of ecosystem collapse.
What we do
support cross border actions
support the sustainable use of the environment in cross border regions of Hungary, Slovakia, Romania and Ukraine
Support joint protection of bats
joint protection of bats in the frame of active conservation actions.
Inform local communities
by supporting public awareness campaign
imparting good practices for local communities.
What Drives Us
This project will focus on the protection of bats in the targeted region, by concrete
conservation actions like:
- proper assessment of the endangered bat populations,
- making alternative shelters of bat colonies (bat boxes, warning chambers),
Also will focus on the protection of cultural values like protection of the religious objects in churches (cleaning the churches from bat guano).
Public aware actions will be implemented like: a mobile exhibition, common workshops of bat box preparation with locals, a documentary movie dedicated to bats.
