Trapping site
We would like invite all people to the next event - Bat course in Malé Karpaty mountains. Please read following information.

About bats
This trapping site is ideal for bats dwelling underground spaces - like bats of the genus Rhinolophus (Horseshoe bats). These are typical small species of bats using their nose to the echolocation. The nose is formed to the horseshoe - so the name. There is also possible to trap other species - like Barbastele bat or Bechsteini bat.
