We say goodbye

Margarete Becker  (www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de)

Since 2009 Margarete Becker has been working for the bats every day. Unfortunately, she recently passed away at the age of 85. She was still active in bat care until two days before her death. We will miss one of our most active members very much. All that's left for us to do is saying THANK YOU for everything she's done for the bats. Since Margarete Becker was also artistically active, some photos of her works continue to form our website.

Keep your fingers crossed

Fransenfledermaus // Myotis nattereri bat  (Dr. Renate Keil / www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de)

During the day, this female Myotis nattereri bat hung open and very underweight on a house wall. Without help, she certainly wouldn't have been able to have and raise a baby in about 8 weeks. She now has to get fit very quickly so that she can get to her nursery roost on time.

Happy Easter

2 Myotis dasycneme bats in one week

Teichfledermaus // Myotis dasycneme bat  (Dr. Renate Keil / www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de)

In one week 2 Myotis dasycneme bats came to our station. The first animal was found floating in the Maschsee pond and rescued by two girls. The bat has a chemical burn on the tip of its ear with attachments of construction foam. The second bat was found in Hannover Central Station. Luckily she is uninjured.

2 days full of desperation

Zwergfledermaus // pipistrellus pipistrellus bat  (Dr. Renate Keil / www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de)

This pipistrellus pipistrellus bat lay at the entrance to a house for two days without the residents paying any attention to her. Finally an animal-loving lady came and brought the animal safely to our station. Severely weakened, she is now being nursed up. https://www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de/fledermaus-gefunden/found-a-bat/

It still takes time

Zweifarbfledermaus // Vespertilio murinus  (Dr. Renate Keil / www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de)

This Vespertilio murinus bat also has to be patient before releases start in Spring. The weather is currently too wet and cold, so that our patients cannot yet set off for freedom.

Bat rescued from roof renovation

Breitflügelfledermaus // Eptesicus serotinus bat  (Dr. Renate Keil / www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de)

Luckily, this Eptesicus serotinus bat was spotted and rescued during a roof renovation. A small abrasion is treated with ointment and he can go back into the wild in Spring. When renovating buildings, please pay attention to possible bat roosts:

https://www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de/fledermausschutz/gebaeudebewohnende-fledermaeuse/bats-and-buildings/

Since more and more roost options are being lost due to renovations, the bats are very happy about new ones:

Vespertilio murinus bat dead

Zweifarbfledermaus // Vespertilio murinus bat  (Dr. Renate Keil / www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de )

The Vespertilio murinus bat was found in a building. Unfortunately he arrived at our station too late and could not be saved. Unfortunately, not every rescue operation ends successfully.

ears up

Fransenfledermaus // Myotis nattereri bat  (Dr. Renate Keil / www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de)

The Myotis nattereri bat recovered well. She is now curiously exploring her surroundings. She will be among the first bats to be released into the wild in Spring. The ring will be removed before release into the wild. It is used within our station for identification so that every animal can be released back into the wild at the correct location where it was found.

Myotis nattereri bat saved

Fransenfledermaus // Myotis nattereri bat  (Dr. Renate Keil / www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de)

This Myotis nattereri bat was hanging on the outside of a building in the cold. Many people carelessly passed by the animal, only one attentive child became concerned and informed the parents. They reacted immediately and took the bat to our veterinarian. The bat is severely underweight, which is not immediately apparent at first glance or in a photo due to its thick fur. This case once again confirms that photo diagnoses for bats can lead to incorrect assessments.

Bat lessons in Burgwedel

Patenschaftsurkunden  (Gudrun Becker / www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de)

This year three classes at Burgwedel High School were taught by our vet Dr. Keil in bat conservation and the correct behavior when bats fly into houses. The children were excited and thanked us with three sponsorships for bat protection.

Plüti at „We are fed up 2024“

Seriously injured bat is fit again

Mückenfledermaus // Pipistrellus pygmaeus  (Dr. Renate Keil / www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de )

11 weeks ago this bat came to our station seriously injured. Now she has recovered. Flight training is carried out diligently until spring and then she heads back to freedom.

 

Wing has healed

Breitflügelfledermaus // Eptesicus serotinus  (Dr. Renate Keil / www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de)

This Eptesicus serotinus bat had an open forearm fracture and flight membrane damage. Both were treated and have healed again. Now it's off to flight training and then back to freedom.

Take Action!

Please take a look at our “Take Action” page - there we have many activities that you can take part in online and that don't cost a cent! And there are also many practical tips on how you can easily eliminate dangers for bats around the house!

Please pay attention to injured animals!

Happy New Year

Das Foto zeigt einen Großer Abendsegler Nyctalus noctula im Porträt // The photo shows a nyctalus noctula in profile Großer Abendsegler Nyctalus noctula  (Gudrun Becker / www-bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de)

Please do not use firecrackers and fireworks

Firecrackers and fireworks scare bats in town and country. In addition, there is the smell of burning, which signals danger to the animals. The animals warm up in panic from deep hibernation and spend much energy. As the animals find no food in Winter, they can starve at the end of Winter due to a lack the energy.

Our advice: Please do not use firecrackers and fireworks.

Merry Christmas

A Christmas Miracle

Zwergfledermaus // Pipistrellus pipistrellus  (Dr. Renate Keil / www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de)

This morning, when our vet wanted to go out on the terrace to feed the birds, a Pipistrellus pipistrellus bat was sitting in the doormat. The bat urgently needed help and made her way to our vet on her own. This is not the first time that bats in need of help have made their way to our veterinarian. Something similar happened in Switzerland many years ago, when 99 Nyctalus noctula bats landed on a balcony of a bat-rescuer in the middle of a big city. Due to the splinter injuries, it was clear that they had apparently escaped from a felled tree. More interesting facts about the life of bats: https://www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de/fledermausschutz/aus-dem-leben-der-fledermaeuse/experiences-with-bats/

False alarm or a break-in?

Zwergfledermaus // Pipistrellus pipistrellus  (Dr. Renate Keil / www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de )

For two nights, the motion detector kept alerting in an apartment, seemingly for no reason. Then the cause was found. There was a bat in the apartment. She was found when she chose the electrics of a rice pot as a place to sleep. She was quickly brought to our vet along with the electrical module in the box. Now the pipistrellus pipistrellus bat is free and can recover from her adventure.

Annual report 2023 - 1st place for the bats

Zweifarbfledermaus // Vespertilio murinus  (Dr. Renate Keil / www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de)

This year the bats were able to celebrate a very special event. The BUND Bat Center Hannover achieved first place in the Bingo Environmental Foundation Lower Saxony's volunteer award. We are very happy about this recognition! We work for the animals every day and we do so on a voluntary basis. Just over 5000 bats have already reached our station, and many animals have been released back into the wild in good health. Unfortunately, we were not able to help all the animals because some bats were so weakened or badly injured that they either reached us dead or treatment was no longer possible. There are around 200 bats on the station at all times, which are cared for and trained by our veterinarian and a care team of around 25 people. Thanks to the Regina Hoppe and Thomas Behncke Foundation, we were able to build a new roost at the BUND Bat Center in Hanover for bat patients who need protected hibernation. We were also active again in public relations. In addition to countless individual consultations, school classes could also be taught again. The Hannover professional fire department and the children's group from the Sehnde volunteer fire department also received training in bat rescue. The lecture hall of the Hannover University of Veterinary Medicine was attended by our veterinarian Dr. Renate Keil filled to the last place. We take part in various events, including the Lower Saxony Orchard Days and Halloween in Vahrenheider Hood for the first time this year. The very good cooperation with the State capital of Hannover continued hand in hand, for example with the Department of Environment and Urban Greenery in the release of Myotis bechsteinii bats in the Eilenriede, the release in the bat quarters of the Herrenhausen Gardens, in numerous rescue operations by the Hannover professional fire department and other cooperation with the Department of Environment and Urban Greenery and the Department of Economics. We would like to thank the State capital of Hanover very much for this wonderful cooperation. And next year we are planning a very special highlight with the Hannover School Biology Center: After a long Corona break, we will be celebrating the Night of the Bats on August 24th, 2024.

The bats would like to thank the many volunteers, some of whom work for the bats every day. We would also like to thank our sponsors and supporters and also the many people who share our posts on social media and make a significant contribution to bat protection by spreading the information.

We would be very happy if you would also make a donation to the bat center in Kharkiv / Ukraine. Every euro helps to save the bats even under the difficult circumstances: www.betterplace.me/ueberlebenshilfe-fuer-bat-center-in-ukraine-oder-kharkiv

Attention nesting boxes for birds!

Fledermaus im Vogelnistkasten // bat in bird nesting box  (Anja Rolf)

Bird nesting boxes can become a death trap for bats! If the walls are not sufficiently rough on the inside, bats, which often choose bird boxes as shelter, can no longer get out of the box and are trapped. Please make sure that the nest box walls are sufficiently roughened. (Quelle und Foto: Anja Rolf)

Finally there!

Fledermaus bricht aus Transportbox aus // Bat escapes out of a transport box  (Dr. Renate Keil / www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de)

This bat couldn't wait to finally get to our vet after being transported. That just went well again! If she had climbed out of the box while driving, the entire vehicle would have had to be searched for the bat. Please close transport boxes well and look out for holes on the sides, especially with shoe boxes. Before you insert the animal, pierce with a fork a few air holes in the box so that the bat gets enough fresh air but cannot escape. Please label the box stating that there is a bat inside and with the destination address and the telephone number of the bat emergency number. In the hopefully unlikely event of an accident, the rescue workers can respond and rescue the animal and take it to the vet. This marking is useful for all animal transport. https://www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de/fledermaus-gefunden/found-a-bat/

New hibernation place in the BUND bat center in Hannover

Winterschlafquartier // Hibernation roost  (Dr. Renate Keil / www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de)

Thanks to the Regina Hoppe and Thomas Behncke Foundation, we were able to build another roost in the BUND Bat Center Hannover for bat patients who need protected hibernation. We thank the foundation very much for this support. The first patients will soon be able to use this area.

Plots for our public relations work

Little bat does not give up!

Mückenfledermaus // pipistrellus pygmaeus  (Dr. Renate Keil / www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de)

In the middle of Hanover's large Maschsea, a male pipistrellus pygmaeus bat was fighting for his life. Luckily, two pedal boaters spotted him in the water and rescued him. At the same time, they alerted the Hanover fire department, who took the completely exhausted bat to our veterinarian. The animal is now recovering in our station. How the bat got into the Maschsea is unclear. Thanks to the attentive people and a bat that didn't give up, the animal will survive and be able to return to freedom after recovery.

Bat gets lost in the Hanover Service Center

Braunes Langohr // Plecotus auritus  (Dr. Renate Keil / www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de)

A Plecotus auritus bat got lost in the Hanover Service Center at the driving license authority of the state capital of Hanover. The employees discovered the animal hanging on the wall and immediately informed our bat emergency number. The bat was already dehydrated. The quick action of the authorities saved the bat’s life. She is currently in our bat station and is already on the mend. The bat has the ring only as long as she is on station with us. We ring the bats so that each animal can be identified and given the correct treatment/training and release location. The ring will be removed before releasing back into the wild.

Tattered wing on a bat has almost completely healed

Flügelverletzung heilt // wing injury on the mend  (Dr. Renate Keil / www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de)

The tattered wing of this cat victim is healing very well. The dark spots are necrotic and will be replaced by healthy dermal tissue by the body. Flutter training could begin after just 2 weeks. In a few months it will be able to fly again, even if the fingertip is missing. Plecotus bats can compensate for this very well with a little practice.

This Myotis daubentonii bat was found on the ground and came to our station. There she immediately discovered mealworms and pounced on the food bowl. Completely full, she fell asleep in the food bowl. After she had had a good night's sleep and the parasites had been eliminated, she was put into training and was released back into the wild a few days later.

If you find bats in high heat, it is very important that the animals have some water to drink. Take the bat with a cloth or glove and offer it water via a teaspoon or pipette (please make sure that the water does not drip into the nose). Then place the animal with the cloth in a box with small air holes and close it tightly. Please keep the box containing the animal indoors, not outside in the heat.

It's hard to believe, the rumor has been circulating for some time that garlic helps prevent bats from entering homes... One of our bat patients clearly demonstrates that this is just nonsense. The easiest way to prevent bats from entering your home is to use a fly screen.

Before being released into the wild, the bat ring will be removed to avoid injury. https://www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de/fledermausschutz/gefahren-fuer-fledermaeuse/threads-for-bats/batrings/

In the station, the bats wear rings so that the animals can be clearly identified and receive the right treatment / training requirement.

Many babies come to our station

Fledermausbaby // Bat Baby  (Dr. Renate Keil / www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de)

Hardly a day goes by without a baby bat arriving at our station. Of course, the babies are offered to be picked up at the quarters by their mothers, but unfortunately this is not always possible. The orphaned babies are lovingly raised by hand and later they are protected released into the wild: https://www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de/fledermauspflege-behandlung/bats-care-and-med-treatment/releasing-captive-born-pipistrellus/

It is striking that almost exclusively Pipistrellus pipistrellus bats and Pipistrellus pygmaeus bats reach us and not many different species as in previous years.

A Myotis bechsteinii bat was released into the wild in a bat box in Eilenriede in cooperation with the Environment and City Green Department of the State Capital of Hannover after she had been nursed back to health in the FOE Bat Center in Hannover. We would like to thank the State Capital of Hannover for this excellent cooperation for the conservation of species. For years we have been working very successfully with the State Capital of Hannover, not only with the Department of Environment and City Green, but also with the professional fire brigade in Hannover, with the Herrenhausen Gardens in Hannover, with the Department of Economics Hannover and the school biology center in Hannover.

Despite the missing part of the bone, the wing skin has grown back together. It doesn't always work and it takes a long time, but it's definitely worth treating.

Poison in the next generation

Vergiftung Zwergfledermaus // Poisoning Pipistrellus Pipistrellus  (Dr. Renate Keil / www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de )

This Pipistrellus pipistrellus was born in summer from a mother who was brought to our station with poisoning (probably wood preservatives). Apparently, the poison passed through the mother's milk to the baby and inhibited fur growth. Comparable cases showed that the fur grows later and the bats are then able of being released into the wild (protected release!). We hope that this will also be the case with this bat.

Tree felling with a mild outcome

Baumfällung // Tree felling  (Dr. Renate Keil / www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de)

During a tree felling of a diseased tree which had been thoroughly inspected for holes / animals, two bats were discovered in a bark crack during the felling. The work was stopped immediately and our bat emergency number was called. The bats could immediately be offered a replacement hole in the neighboring tree. However, one animal did not want to stay there and flew back into the tree to be felled. There it crept into a very long and deep crevice in a branch. The tree therefore had to be secured against falling over to give the bat the opportunity to look for a new roost overnight. The next day the bat was no longer to be seen in the felling tree, which was thoroughly examined again. Nevertheless, increased caution was required. The piece in question was carefully removed from the tree, examined repeatedly and leaned vertically against the neighboring tree. The neighboring tree has tree holes, so that the bat can move into the tree hole should she nevertheless be in the piece of branch. Such cases show that despite the utmost care, bats can be in trees to be felled, even though the trees have been carefully endoscoped. For this reason, construction foam closures of tree holes are also a deadly hazard if animals are overlooked during endoscopy! Please note that bat roosts can also be found in small, thin trees.

Bat saved from freezing

Zwergfledermaus // Pipistrellus pipistrellus  (Dr. Renate Keil / www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de)

Due to the persistent cold, some bats that have not yet found a frost-proof roost have to flee the cold. Not all animals find a frost-proof place in time. During this time, please pay particular attention to bats lying on the floor or balcony. Even if the bats appear to be dead, they are often only immobile because of the cold. Please, save the animals and contact a bat expert immediately. If you are advised to simply put the animal back at the nearest tree, please do not follow this advice, as this would mean death for the animal. Please call another contact who will take care of the animal.

In 2012 the BUND bat center Hannover was opened. Since then, over 4600 bats have received help from us. Countless emergency calls and requests for advice are constantly being received by our BUND bat emergency hotline, which is managed by Dr. Keil and is served 24 hours a day. More than 30 volunteers take care of the bats in the BUND bat center and train the animals for releasing back to the wild. In addition to almost daily emergency operations, our tasks also include work in the forests, control of bat quarters, training courses, guided tours and lectures. In 2022 we were able to take part in some events in Hanover and the surrounding area again. We are also teaching school classes about bats. There is always much to do backstage like craftsmanship, logistics and office work. Our tasks are very diverse. Every day we volunteer for the animals. In 2021 we renovated the bat center together with the state capital Hanover. The thermal insulation of the attic and the windows, as well as the stable roof construction have proven themselves excellently in 2022. We thank the state capital Hanover for this great support.

The bats would like to thank the many volunteers, some of whom work daily for the bats. We would also like to thank our loyal sponsors and supporters and also the many people who share our posts on social media and make a significant contribution to bat protection by spreading the information.

These two Plecotus auritus bats chose a construction site as their winter quarter. They were rescued unharmed. The construction site will carefully searched for bats. If you are planning conversions or demolitions of buildings, please pay attention to possible bat  quarters. Look here where bats can possibly have a quarter.

Hannover Animals-Garden Festival 2022

Shortly before the start of the festival, we thought that with our bat information booth with a width of 9 m and 10 people staff, we would be well prepared for the many interested visitors. But shortly after the start of the festival, our booth was completely crowded. Many young and old visitors curiously explored the world of bats. Even after the end of the lantern parade around 7 p.m., there were still interested visitors at our booth.

Chimneys & Ovens

In Winter many bats are looking for the warmness of the chimney. Unfortunately, the search for the warmness sometimes ends up by falling into the chimney where the bats are trapped and have no way out. The animals fall in and burn painfully. Tip: Please look often into the chimney if a bat is inside. Please, pay attention to bats in stacks of wood, who are there for hibernation.

Please, share our information!

This Pipistrellus nathusii bat was lying helpless in downtown. Countless passers-by carelessly ignored the bat until finally an animal lover showed a heart for bats. She saved the bat's life and quickly took her to our vet. The bat had a fractured forearm. This has now been splinted and needs to stabilize before the bat goes into flight training and back to freedom.

This male Myotis mystacina bat came to our station completely weak and thirsty. Many animals are thirsty and unfortunately the public fountains have been turned off in many places as part of the energy saving measures. Please provide drinking facilities for the animals. For larger watering places, please pay attention that correspondingly thick branches offer a rescue option to animals that have fallen into it. Click here to see how you can avoid watering places and rain barrels becoming a death trap. With smaller water bowls, small sticks give insects a chance to save their lives from drowning.

#animal_rescue #BUNDchen

Attention! Young bats explore their surroundings!

The young bats are now on their first flights exploring their surroundings. This can easily result in flights into buildings. The animals fly in through open / hopper windows. Even bat invasions can occur. The bats put their lives in danger if, for example, they fly behind cupboards or into empty vases, watering cans, wastepaper baskets or lanterns, which can easily become a death trap. Since they also like to hide in the folds of curtains, it can happen that they get caught there and can no longer free themselves. If bats fly in, please remain calm. Close all doors to prevent flight into other rooms. In the dark, open all windows and balcony doors wide so that the animals can find the exit. Before doing this, please check window or door frames for animals so that they are not accidentally crushed. Never allow cats or dogs into the room. Captured animals may only be released after dark, otherwise they are easily prey to cats and birds of prey. Please do not put injured bats or bats that have not taken off themselves outside! Bats like this need urgent help. Please, call the nearest bat expert (for contacts: https://www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de/fledermaus-gefunden/found-a-bat/ ). In addition, if it is possible for you, please rescue the animal. To do this, you should only touch the animal with a cloth and carefully place it with the cloth in a cardboard box (with very small air holes). Close the box very well. If you need assistance with the rescue, please contact the bat expert or the fire brigade. Please keep an eye out for bats in the room on the following evenings as well, as they initially hid and might not have been discovered on the first evening. Please check open vessels that can become a death trap for bats.

Please share our information so that as many animals as possible can be helped. Thank you for your help.

Our tip: The best way to prevent intruders is to either keep the windows closed or to put an insect net in front of the window.

You can find more information about bat animals and quick help here!

On to freedom

The release of recovered bat patients is in full swing. The orphan babies of the Pipistrellus pipistrellus  and Pipistrellus pygmaeus bats also find their way to freedom. So far 48 of these former orphan babies have been released into the wild. Since hunting success is still difficult at the beginning, the animals are given food and water in the release boxes. Here the animals can return until they have sufficient hunting success of their own. For further information please click here.

This is also the reason why victims of tree felling have to be examined thoroughly with a magnifying lamp before they are released back into the wild. This also applies to bats, which appear unharmed at first glance. Left untreated, shrapnel injuries can lead to dangerous abscesses.

In 2012 the FOE bat center in Hannover was opened. Since then, more than 4000 bats have reached us, countless emergency calls and requests for advice are constantly being received by our BUND bat emergency hotline. In addition to field work, quarter support, training courses, guided tours and lectures, we also take part in many events in Hanover and the surrounding area every year. Together with the school biology center in Hannover, bat information material is available for schools to borrow and we occasionally teach school classes about bats. There is always a lot to do backstage in terms of craftsmanship, logistics and office work, too. Our tasks are very diverse. Every day we work for the animals.

Akinese / Dead spot reflex

Contrary to the first impression, the bats in these photos are not dead. Bats can pretend to be dead in case of danger with the aim that possible attackers lose interest in them. This dead spot can last up to 10 minutes, in rare cases longer. Please note that if you find a supposedly dead bat, you must first salvage it. To do this, you should only touch the animal with a cloth and carefully place the cloth in a cardboard box (with very small air holes). Close the box very well and keep it at room temperature. Please contact a bat-rescue immediately at https://www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de/fledermaus-gefunden/found-a-bat/ After about 15 minutes, please carefully open the box and check whether the bat's position has changed or it moves again. If so, please take the bat to the nearest foster home. If the bat's position has not changed, please try carefully to open the wing a little. If the wing is movable, it means that the bat is only in a coma, but still alive. In this case, the bat immediately needs medical help in a care station (see link "found a bat" above). If the wing can no longer be opened and rigor mortis has set in, the bat has unfortunately died.

Merry X-Mas!

Our new bat models have arrived. Visitors to our information booths can not only look at these models, but also touch them. This means that visually impaired people will also have the opportunity to get to know the bats better. Now we still hope that the pandemic will end soon, so that we can go on tour again with information booths.

The roof is stable again. Final construction works are now to follow. We would like to thank the state capital Hanover for the quick and competent help! In January we start with the thermal insulation so that the animals in the aviaries can sleep undisturbed in their hibernation even in colder winters.

2nd Advent weekend in the bat center

The hard work will continue on the 2nd weekend in Advent. The craftsmen are working their way into the next area for renovation.

2021 a year full of work

Braunes Langohr // Plecotus auritus  (Dr. Renate Keil / www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de)

Hoping that the pandemic could at least be contained in 2021, we again planned to take part in various events. But as in 2020, one event after the next had to be canceled due to corona. Fortunately, we were able to take part in the Biodiversity Day of Solvay GmbH with a lecture and an action on bat box construction in compliance with all corona rules. The large number of bat emergencies for which Dr. Renate Keil continued to ensure the emergency room and medical care every day. Our many hard-working volunteers were active every day with rescue service, bat care, flight training and releasing bats tot he wild. In 2021 a Whats app tutorial started by Dr. Keil for bat care centers throughout Germany to provide support with medical questions and treatments relating to various bat emergencies. The tutorial will continue in 2022. We were also able to support the Lower Nature Conservation Authority with numerous important data from bats in mapping the bat populations. At the demonstration against the highway through the Leinemasch Hanover, we brought our demand for the preservation of the habitat on the street. (Petition) 

Then the shock! The state capital Hannover, as the owner of the bat center building, determined that the roof had to be statically stabilized. But that's not all, because in the course of the work it turned out that the problem was bigger than initially assumed. While the bat patients had gone into hibernation, a comprehensive redevelopment plan had to be developed together with the state capital Hannover. For this purpose, the animals first had to be evacuated from the construction site area, then the various crafts of the state capital Hannover started work in close cooperation with us. At the same time, our volunteers began a comprehensive renovation of the almost 10-year-old aviaries. The floor is being completely renewed, many bat boxes are being renovated or replaced, the walls are getting a new coat of paint and much more. When the bats will wake up from hibernation in Spring 2022, they can explore their completely renovated aviaries.

We would like to thank the State Capital Hannover and the many active members of our Bat Conservation Team for this great commitment.

Many thanks also to our many supporters of our work. The bats would also like to thank everyone who shared our information about bat protection.

We wish you a Merry Christmas and all the best for 2022. Please stay connected to us next year as well.

Yours

Bat Conservation Team FOE BUND Region Hannover

Caution: chimneys and firewood!

Now the time for chimneys begins. What seems romantic to us can become a death trap for bats. Bats like to hide in piles of firewood. If the wood is shifted, the bats can be seriously injured. In the worst case, they can even be put in the fireplace with the wood and burned. Please watch out for bats when stacking firewood and filling the fireplace! Please spread the information so that as many animals as possible are spared this fate!

Dangerous Splinters

Großer Abendsegler mit Splitterverletzung // Nyctalus noctula with splinters  (Dr. Renate Keil / www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de)

When bats fall victim to tree felling, splinters often penetrate deep into the bat's bodies. Please note:  The animals often seem to be healthy. Splinter injuries can only be seen well under a magnifying lamp, so we urgently recommend to save all animals, who felt victim to  tree felling, and let them examined by bat experts or vets at a suitable location with very good lighting and a magnifying lamp!

With the onset of the cold, the first refugees from the cold who had not found frost-proof quarters come to our station. Thermal renovations of buildings and tree fellings make it more and more difficult for bats to find frost-proof roosts. While police were bringing a bat that had taken refuge from the cold in a hospital, a family brought in a pipistrellus pipistrellus that was taking refuge on their balcony.

Please do not use firecrackers and fireworks

Firecrackers and fireworks scare bats in town and country. The animals warm up in panic from deep hibernation and spend much energy. As the animals find no food in Winter, they can starve at the end of Winter due to a lack the energy.

Our advice: Please do not use firecrackers and fireworks.

2020 - a special year

Motivated we started with 2 events in January 2020: We campaigned for agriculture without pesticides at the big demonstration “We're fed up” in Berlin and had an information stand about bats  at the Hanover film premiere of the film “The Secret Life of Trees”. At the beginning of the year, three school classes were also given a lesson about bats and, to their great enthusiasm, the kids had the opportunity to look directly into the bats‘ black eyes.

Of course, the first bat patients reached our station in January. Then we started thinking about the organization of our event "European Batnight" in Hanover. But everything turned out differently ... Due to the coronavirus weh ad to rise up with big challenges. One event after the next had to be canceled. Our care and emergency teams had to be separated and work alone, no longer in a team. The handover of injured bats had to be switched to a contactless handover. All communication was switched to WhatsApp and telephone, as team meetings were not possible. We were only able to welcome a few new volunteers in our group under strict hygiene requirements. At the same time, we expected a large number of questions from concerned people whether the virus can be transmitted by bats. However, these quetsions didn’t reach us, because apparently the people did not let themselves be alarmed - perhaps thanks to the broad public relations work of the bat protection groups, which clarified at all levels that the corona virus cannot be transmitted from native bats to humans. So we had one less worry, but we were mainly concerned about the significantly larger number (compared to previous years ) of weakened or injured plecotus bats that reached our station. This is very unusual and it remains to be clarified in the future whether this is a negative trend or just an unfortunate exception. Overall more than 400 bats reached our station in 2020. Fortunately, we were again able to release a very large number of bat patients in good health.

Certainly due to the prohibition of contact, our vet's online inquiries and consultations were increasing. Fortunately more and more vets are now taking part in bat care, sending photos and getting advice on the treatment of bat patients. The network of veterinary colleagues who not only euthanize injured bats but treat them is slowly expanding.

You are also welcome to take a look at our annual review in pictures on our YouTube channel: youtu.be/-k94S1jcAdQ

We would like to thank all of our volunteers who work tirelessly for the bats even in this difficult time. We would also like to thank all donators and bat-godparents and all people who share our information in conversations or on our social media channels. Please stay connected to the bats in 2021 - How you can help bats in a variety of ways, see here: https://www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de/mitmachen-oder-helfen/take-action/

We wish you a good start into the New Year.

This Myotis mystacinus was found in the Marktchurch in Hannover. The finders did not hesitate and immediately handed the bat into competent hands. As a layperson, please do not try to care for a bat. In addition to proper handling, the animals must also be adequately housed, medically treated and released back into the wild. None of this is possible without specialist knowledge and experience. Please do not hesitate - every minute counts in an emergency, even if the bat appears to be healthy and fit. This impression is often wrong, because wild animals mobilize their last strength under stress! Found a bat – click here!

Bats in Parasols

Fledermaus im Sonnenschirm // Bat in a parasol  (Anja Daniels / www.bund-fledermauszentrum-hannover.de)

Bats like to look for day quarters in closed parasols. Please watch out for bats sleeping there when you open the parasol. If a bat has moved in and you don't need the parasol, you are welcome to let the bat stay there. If you would like to use the parasol, please contact a bat expert who will either come to move the animal or give you tips on how you can move the animal yourself without endangering it. Please do not just open the parasol, the animal could fall to the ground or be pinched. Before you move the parasol into the gazebo, especially in Autumn, make sure that there is no bat sleeping.
