The project will be built on the results of the previous project. Two main parts of the project are identified:
1. conservation of roost and foraging sites
2. education of the public
Within the conservation of roost sites, we will realize measures for the bat conservation in bunkers (army shelters), old dog pens (colonized by the bat colony) and tourist shelters. Also, wetlands will be revitalised and trees with cavities suitable for bats will be marked and protected.
Our activities will involve local people in conservation actions similar to the previous project. We will realize presentations for children and the course about bat identification in the field. In this project, we will be more focused on the conservation of roost sites and foraging sites and education about them in selected areas - Bratislava City Forests and Buda Mountains. We plan involving people more for our activities.
