Bats around the world

Description: 

“Bats around the World” is an electronic publication on bats to increase awareness and involve the general public in the conservation of these fascinating animals. Interesting facts about bats, species profiles, threats and conservation activities undertaken by organizations across the globe can now be accessed by experts and interested laymen alike. The publication shall serve as an incentive to learn about and protect these species. The readers are invited not only to find out about these fascinating species, but also to take a quiz after reading the material to test their knowledge about bats! In addition, a “Build your bat box” game takes the readers through the steps needed to build a home for bats. The Secretariat hopes to motivate many readers to turn the game into reality by getting involved in the protection of bats! The production of this publication was made possible by the generous support of the Federal Office for the Environment of the Swiss Confederation.
